Crux ice pillar was leaning over to give an easy, but very photogenic angle. Immense fun on good ice!

A bit weird formation; perhaps due to wind blowing up the valley. We climbed a ramp like free standing pillar. Very funky. Spectators thought it was dubious but perfectly sound when you got on it.

Going out of condition very wet The Shower Curtain would be a more appropriate name!

Good fun - crazy ice formations, although some of the screws didn't inspire total confidence!
AJM - Lead O/S - 09/Jan/10 with Ali Baylay
Marvellous climb. Scary step out into space at 2/3 height onto a thin tongue of ice that looks like it shouldn't hold the weight of anything more than a small dog. Belay well back on blocks. Don't know why Welsh Winter climbs doesn't give this stars.
(PS: Steve, if you read this today, send me an email via ukc - battery's dead on phone)
(PPS: Gethin, I also twatted myself in the face today with ice dislodged by my Simond Piranhas.)

Quite tough - great lead by Paul, especially on the suspended pillar high up.

Really delicate ice. Nice hooking higher up.

Randomly came across Adam and his brother ed while soloing in Idwal. Ed led the pitch and kindly offered me a rope. I wouldn't have dared soloing it as there were some steep sections, particularly one bit where it was slighly overhanging and you had to trust your foot on a spur of ice that looked like it was going to fall off under pressure.

1st lead. Great sheets and sails of ice really exciting with supportive crowd below. Ice screws so much harder to place than expected.
