Ciimbed Alpine style tho had to wait friggin ages for 2 older chaps to clear the route, leader spent ages and ages on the last section shouting "I've got nothing" and "I'm in the middle of nowhere". As soon as the second left we headed up behind him then passed them after the crux, they were still messing about on the last snowfield as we headed bak into the cove some 25 mins later!!.. heyho a good route!

Snow soft but still climbable, the steps we kicked up were easily weight bearing. The cornice at the top is not too big and easily outflanked on a snow rib. There is a reasonable amount of snow in Red tarn at the moment so if it freezes the gullies will come in. The turf is however unfrozen so anything relying on turf will need a more prolonged freeze.
