Led 1, 3 and 5. Tricky moves on each of these. Protection on p3 crux was rather lower than I would like and the hook not as good as hoped for. Good moves at start of p5 but the little wall was v tricky with hooks covered up

A good option for today due to the low freeing levels and vast amounts of fresh snow. Route itself is good fun, and feels quite adventurous. Crampon scratches mark the way and the guidebook is quite easy to follow.

Some great climbing on this and the crux chimney corner was entertaining! Pretty good conditions and excellent weather given the forecasts. Janis took a hard alternative start up a hanging corner to the right of the usual start which was probably VI, 6

A poor route. Not sustained with most of the difficult moves being off one ledge onto another. Brilliant location and easy access though.
