Nice easy approach and descent which I was glad for after yesterdays mission. Great route, melting though!

I wouldn't recommend this climb as it is starting to melt at the moment. I think we caught it in the nick of time. My second winter climb and first winter lead. Great.

Bit of an anti-climax...and got smacked bigtime by flying ice.
jaggy bunnet - AltLd - 28/Mar/13 with frazzy4

Climbing as a three and started at 1 pm after the masses had all but vacated the climb and after we had backed off The Screen due to rotten ice on the main pitch. No 6 was in great condition though a bit too stepped, but still able to to use virgin ice. Graham lead every thing except last pitch which was a joint lead with myself & Paul. Epic day.

Third time! Possibly the most interesting time as well, as lots of good hard ice and featured sections, with a freeze this will only get better - go do it!

With RK. The ice in the lower section of first pitch was dislodged by out passing. Thereafter a smashing ice route. We were unsure the traverse to the right at the top of the difficulties would lead us to a safe descent. So we went up..into sunshine and sandwiches...a smashing picnic

Started at the very bottom, below a short mixed section past some small jammed (?) boulders. The ice crux was on P4, which had a short steep section, whereas the main ice fall on P5 was more like III. On the last pitch opted for an interesting mixed groove with a slightly overhanging exit via an ice column - don't think it was IV! Great route, very atmospheric situation. Six pitches, led P2, P4 and P6. We found two bits of dropped gear, one of which was a glove - email me with details.

Not quite as fun as last time as plus five degrees, lots of rain coming down and some slushy snow to deal with. A few of the pitches were pretty good though, good double with the Screen. Tempted by Elliot's Downfall but just a bit too mild!
