Grim day. Rained all the way, windy and wild. Great fun! Didnt continue to the Saddle but managed some brilliant glissades back down.

Roped up with Keith. Dave B and Dave C soloed the whole route. Windslab and sun-softened recent snow on the aretes felt pretty dodgy. An amazing route; very 'Alpine' and quite scary.

Just a bit too warm, snow in bad conditions so we aborted our plans ate our sandwiches and stared up at the ridge instead.

Reached the foot of the Ridge after traversing the initial top but turned back as the return ground looked very remote & avalanche prone with one metre of new snow on the mountain! Again defeated the following winter by extreme winds!
