Soft snow, sometimes deep! No ice. Descended north east ridge

Soft snow but better nearer the top, traversed around well right to find some slightly harder sections, likely no more than 2.

Soft snow above 600m with quite a lot of rock showing, icy on the top section.

Very lean only ice on the rocks, took a fairly typical route.

Quick winter ascent in thawing conditions. Still deep powder on the upper third of the ridge.

Good winter conditions for first outing of first purchase of good boots, ice axe and crampons for first tick of a winter climb. Sought out the hardest steps. Could have managed without crampons (partners managed) but it was fun scooting up short icy sections with them. I can see why two axes is needed to move on to propa winter climbing.

Quite a bit of snow and icy in places. We didn't feel the need to use our winter tools (though some people were) but poles were helpful on the descent.

Poor vis and powdery snow, but a determined attempt to seek out the difficulties on the right hand side gave a good day out. Didn't see anyone else the way we went, despite a few people on the hill :-)

Only at the grade if you really, really look for hard-ish bits. Plenty of unconsolidated snow.

Lots of snow, but no need for crampons or axes.
