First proper winter climb. Mostly unconsolidated snow with plenty of ice. Took it slow and steady and enjoyed the sublime surroundings.

Unconsolidated snow and ice only really present on the flat ledges. Main challenge was staying dry.

Enjoyable day-apart from tons of powder on hillsides. Short iced up corners gave some surprisingly awkward climbing so roped up in the upper sections for first outing this winter.

Mike & Anne moved roped together while I soloed most of it except for a couple of places where I chose an interesting way for which I asked for a top-rope. Not much climbable ice, lots of manky snow, quite a lot of mixed/try-tooling.

Great evenings climb. Lots of fun more of a mixed climbing outing as there was not a lot of ice.

Mostly verglas so hard in places
cragtyke - Solo - 13/Dec/12
Was starting to melt as we reached the top, placements were getting harder to find not helped by the amount of traffic it had seen, lots of debris at the bottom of the interesting bits. Good fun though!

Good few steps, took them direct as possible except the last major one as it was overhanging and had a waterfall down it. Also a night time ascent and topped out at around midnight

Ice all forming nicely. The two small ice falls are good, and climbed direct. Bit delicate in places, but still plenty of axe placements, and really surprisingly thick in places. 2 people in front of us 3, and at least 2 behind.
