East Ridge II
[Me on an exposed section of the buttress near the top of the route, 1 kb]2 pitches. Mostly a scramble but the crux section near the top needs protecting in Winter as the narrow ledges are very exposed and a slip (on Verglas or snow)would have serious consequences. Short but exposed and enjoyable with good spike belays.

We started later than planned, had to deal with an incident on the crux and ended up abseiling off one pitch from the top. A good day out though!

Nerve racking without a rope, axe or crampons (crazy idea) snow obscured vital holds, and the narrow ledges that form the crux were hair raisingly icy. Wind rising and intermittent driving snow during the ascent. Memorable learning experience, and a relief to top out in one piece.
