Rockfax Description
The one route that everyone wants to do. If it is in condition (rarely) then get up early and get ready to queue. Worth the wait though!
1) 5, 30m. Climb the icefall on the front of the pedestal to a ledge belay
2) 6, 40m. A long, pumpy pitch up the steep icefall above leads to a belay either left or right of the icicle, depending on conditions
3) 6, 30m. Tackle the overhanging icicle direct!
3a) 6, 35m. If the icicle hasn't formed thick enough for your mate to lead it, you can sneak left to join Chequered Wall, which is sometimes 'in nick' when the main icicle isn't. © Rockfax

Awesome! First pitch was not as thing as it looked. I Lead middle pitch, steep and sustained with good ice and screws. Top pitch was short but wild and memorable. Great little morning excursion, back in Beris for afternoon coffee!

Didn't manage the last pitch which needed one more day to form.

Amazing! Lived up to it's reputation. Climbing the pillar at the top was a dream come true! Second pitch in particular felt pretty spicy - lots of shit ice - but I suppose grade VI is bound to feel spicy unless you're a complete wad.

A climb that trully lives upto: There is no shame in fear...only in giving into it!

A torchlight ascent after work at the behest of the lad. I had to rest on P1; he linked P2 & P3 on 60m ropes, belaying as the angle eased. An eerie & exciting experience & I think it fell down the next day.
