Awkward combination of hard water ice and rubbish sugary stuff
arose - Lead - 24/Jan/15 with Clients

Felt steep and hard, with most of the ledges much more useless than they looked! Amazing ice though, with some really cool ridgy icicle sections at the bottom.
joesmith - Lead - 24/Jan/15 with Jack

Hard water ice, hard to get axe placements directly but good for hooks.

Plan B after deciding there was too much fresh snow about. Took the groove line to the left felt sustained VI,5? Not a particularly smooth lead made more interesting by snapping a crampon half way up.
Captain Solo - Lead - 17/Mar/13 with Gary

Seconded a grade IIIish ice route (Aaron leading), then we set up a top rope and climbed the vertical ice to its right in the back of a gully. Built a snow-hole to keep out of the wind while waiting my turn!

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 28/Jan/13

This time a line left of the main icefall that I've never seen formed on previous visits. Up the groove at the left end of the overhanging rocks. Similar in difficulty to the main cascade.
