All of 30mins car to car. Just about in nick. There's still water running down the central part and other parts are hollow in places. If you hero hook your way up then it will last longer.

Superb evening climbing. Played around for an hour or two before topping out and walking off the back. Ice in good nick, probably better a few days before hand.

Enjoyable slab this - good for a bit of fun. Got there early and did 4 different variations - the last being a solo to go up and retrieve the abseil. Getting a bit warmer and some meltwater but still worthwhile.
