Climbed with nigel and pat, walked 80 in dark, was good when we got there but warming up after ( team behind us decided against it by then) early birds and worms!

Interesting..... After all the hype we took the walk up to take a look.....we arrived about 23:30 and had to wait a wee while before we could have a go. We flipped a coin for the lead..... Ice wasn't bonded that well to the rock but we were gentle with our plecemnts and moved south caution. Some interesting sections due to the conditions. Great night out with some night navigation to get home.

Led p2. Great fun! My first pure ice climb.

Stroppy 04/Feb Lead O/S

Lots of ice but also lots of running water. Not good enough for screw but found a couple of nuts (and pink tricam) along the way. Topped out 23:30. Cheers to Rog for coming out on his first ice climb, not sure what will be left today but probs worth a look if anyone is out that way.

Davp 04/Feb Lead

Night climb with suberb vis. Ice formed up, but in variable condition. Some care required. At least three teams aborted their attempt. Cracking route though.

I lead the first pitch up the ice fall. Nick lead the traverse and scramble mixed scramble on the far left exit. Soloed another II/III ice route about 200m left of the downfall that we spotted on descent. nice

A crazy night, climbed in a storm as the forecast was to warm up the next day, started climbing after 10pm and finished after midnight, worth the lack of sleep though. I led P1 and Tony led P2.

Did P1 then traversed to the right (substantially) to avoid the cue and the water. Exited via an interesting snow slope with a mixed/rock climb near the top.

Took the hardest line, straight up the shallow steps to the ledge. Traversed using the big icicle as a runner, climbed the step 5mtr icefall to the top.

First ice lead awesome!!! Climbed at 1.00am in a white out. Ice was good even the ice screws looked bomber(ish) :-) Top roped direct before hand so had knowledge of the bit that crosses the direct.
