Conditions made it very easy. Ice on pitch out of cave is getting thin and could do with a refreeze to survive.

Great nick (III/3) and weather, I led top two pitches. Great fun and busy, but generally no problem as we arrived at belay just as the party ahead left. Carmen didn't appreciate the shoe box sized lump of ice dumped on her shoulder by the overtaking pair, thanx for that. Left a sling and krab at bottom, dropped a dmm bug and krab :-( !

Great route!! Well worth getting up super early to get on it!! Was mobbed, must have been at least 7 Parties trying to get up when we were there. Condition was good but certainly well traffic'd. Nice wee pitch before the route even started was a bonus!

Simon Caldwell 24/Feb/13 AltLd O/S

I led the icefall to start then 3 or 4 other short pitches, Rob led the last 2 inc cave pitch, various soloing and moving together. SHowing the signs of its popularity with lots of hooks and steps, no more than III in this state (Red Gully the day before was harder). Late-ish start meant we missed the queues and only occasionally saw people at belays (other than one impatient pair who pushed past). Brilliant route, would be good to get it in pristine nick sometime, ie before someone starts a UKC thread to summon the hoards!
