30m. In good conditions the central ice pillar, with it's cascade of icicles, can produce a steep and serious pitch.

Soloed all the way to the top, after having soloed the easier two other right hand routes (Downfall Climb and Central Direct). Probably easier than the normal grade because there were deep ices-axes and crampons hollows in the ice.

midnight, no harness, 1 ice screw, one pair of crampons and ice axes between us. Cool route.

great conditions, last day before it departed. After topping out there were about 8 people in the queue. Leaving work early paid dividends

Worst hot aches of my life! Ice in reasonable nick but huge amount of loose snow on ledges made it a necky lead for Rob.

Bottom pillar of thick ice has cruddy veneer in places, but takes good screws. Upper pillar fine , but the snow at the top had me worried, very gently dig trench up protection-less snow - phew

The condition was excellent after the prolonged cold spell (once in 30 years?), ice being well-formed and the temperature being just freezing (-3 degC): http://www.flickr.com/photos/alpiniste/4276530560/ The upper snowy part was dodgy with a big cornice, so we traversed to the left.
