In hindsight I could have soloed it but as I was climbing with walking axes I thought it was better to top-tope the harder start and end.

Late evening raid in the dark. Been watching the temps and condition reports all week and planned it just before warm front moved in. Had hoped to get out of work earlier but was quite late when we started and temps rose 2 degrees while we were out. Just about enough ice to climb and what little turf we used was solid too. Not enough (solid)ice for the final vertical wall so took easier ice steps to the right.

took the line of least resistance as the best/steepest routes were'nt quite thick enough. comnfortable grade II/III taking the easiest line, but easily grade IV taking the most interesting mixed/ice lines if they are in condition.

Excellent route, easy to solo if you take the grade II start. Traversed off the steepest starting ice line due to lack of ice on the top out which would have made it very awkward. The final step is brilliant fun.

Soloed as an easy snow plod though lots of powder snow and brittle ice.

Very good conditions although not too much ice on the top pitch which made it a bit scary. Thouroghly enjoyable though.

At night. Started from the falls next to the road then walked to the south and followed the gully. Mixture of solo/lead and second (no gear placed) Quite thin but climbable.

Did first and last pitch. Bottled out of the hard start halfway up, but enjoyed the steep finish on the top pitch. Great night out with moonlight and headtorches!
