Unsure about best route through final summit wall, seemed harder than crux and unlikely at grade. Time pressing, so abbed from block just below.

Climbed with Gordon Gray. Crag was blanketed in soft snow so a lot of clearing required to find gear which is plentiful. Turf overall bomber. I linked and climbed pitches 1 & 2 which in retrospect was a mistake as communication can be difficult and the pitch meanders so rope drag was a problem. The traverse from the top of the initial groove on pitch 2 was the crux and very tricky. Once the moves are worked out you just need to commit. Not hard but very tricky. Pitch 3 very good fun and pitch 4 harder than expected with well protected technical climbing. We abbed off the top into the notch on the ridge with one 60 m rope.

Early start with good walk in to sunrise. Route in shade. Gary lead pitches 1/2 up angled ramp to vertical crack to difficult right corner and traverse. Pitch 3 vertical corner with thin feet to right traverse over frozen turf. Pitch 4 with weather turning right of arÍte over ledges to awkward final move. Ab off top in darkness to notch. great route recomended

Great second pitch. Turf frozen - for now!

Sesame Groove pitch excellent. Almost gave myself groin strain on the traverse moves at the top of the groove.
