Fair amount of powder in lower section and just beginning to thaw. Ended up taking a much steeper section of ice as it was in better condition and then a traverse rightwards to finish up Quartvein Scoop. I reckon IV - felt pretty tough and steeper than I had anticipated. Probably due to my shoddy route finding.

First pitch was spent digging in powder, second pitch had some decent ice, finished up Quartzvein Scoop.

reasonably straightforward on the day, alternative to a mobbed Quartvein. Great ice formations, protection good.

Not sure top pitch was all there, so moved right onto top pitch of Quartzvein Scoop.

Quite a lot of water running under the ice made for an interesting belay stance sprinkling.

Long day. Started late, ended up not having enough rope to finish in two pitches. Ended up topping out in the dark. Good climbing though.

Did it as first grade III. Hard, brittle ice and an umbrella blocking the easy way, forcing us into the steep wall to the left, made it a hard one. In retrospect I think, it was more like solid IV,4 that day.
