Not much ice. Maybe vi 7 at the moment.

This was hard. No ice on the chockstones where needed (impressive effort by Jeremy on the crux), unconsolidated ice in between made it serious, and lots of digging and shuffling of snow. Safe to say, this will be memorable. The last pitch was confusing, we went up right-hand side which included intricate body-jamming, and the route is longer than the guidebook indicates. And, on a route that hardly sees traffic, another team came up behind us.

At first chockstone the left wall was dry despite extensive ice lower down the mountain. I managed to tentatively pull up to a thin rotten runnel of ice to the side of the chockstone which was just not solid enough to pull up on. Gave up after 2 falls and continued on up Great gully. Would definitely 'go' if a bit more ice.

Absolutely amazing! Climbed two pitches up the Direct Finish, but retreated back to the fork to finish up the normal route, which was no push over. Took left hand finish.
Ken Applegate - AltLd - 01/Apr/13 with Andy Barker

A brilliant route that doesn't let up. I was lucky not to fall on the lead on the second chockstone pitch as one axe ripped while I had all my weight on it and landed on the handle of the other which was fortunately well-wedged.
Andrew Barker - AltLd O/S - 01/Apr/13 with Ken Applegate

Bugger all ice as apparently usual! James did a superb job of mixing his way up. Fantastic route for an icy winter
Thoms6974 - 2nd dog - 19/Mar/13 with James

Both of us tried and fell off. Even if it is fully iced I suspect the grade is 'traditional'.

Rather lean low down... bold higher up, snow needs some consolidation.

supurb. I got the best/harder pitches generally but Al got the open pitch a bit below the top which was serious
