Lean in the corner.
Dave Richards - 2nd O/S - 07/Feb/15 with sjbrook
Think this is the route we did. From the top of what we now believe to V-corner we ascended a small gully past a short ice fall on the left, then past the peg on the left and arrived at the hard corner shown on a lot the photos for v-corner. Turf was frozen but the ice in the crack was rotten and i took a fall from a third of the way up, re started back at the peg and this time made it so classing the fall as a practice. Not done loads of III but was the hardest winter route I have done so far, probably due to lean conditions.

Felt very hard and poorly protected for a III. Good though.

Didn't quite seem to match the description. The easy traverse round the rib on the right was the trickiest bit, the slab was more like a groove, and the exit up the corner didn't feel like III. But hard to see where we might have gone wrong, so I think maybe the description applies to different conditions.
Will led this pitch, then I traversed back left acrosss the top of the V Corner to finish up a harder-than-it-looked icefall (grade 4?) and another shorter icefall, leaving a short climb over the cornice to the top.

I'm fairly certain this is the route we did. After the turfy slab we traversed back in the V corner, then Simon led up a short vertical ice fall on the left and continuing icy steps. Made for a good route overall (though the ice fall was tricky and looked a scary lead!)
