Good hard snow with some short but perfectly formed water ice sections. Lovely route.

Night solo. Great condition. Think we were on right line but it was really dark. 2 steepish bits.

Good conditions with some nice ice forming. A bit of loose snow but no where near bad as the reports from elsewhere. Moved together on pitch one but pitched 2 and 3 due to lack of gear.

I say soloed, we moved together after pitch one as it was pointless to be roped up, no pro and too much powder snow!

ratm 28/Dec/09 AltLd O/S

Swimming in powder. Not much in the way of pro went in and the top section was pretty sketchy. Loose powder on vertical-ish rocks. Fun day though, great weather conditions. Shame about the climbing conditions.

LakesWinter 27/Dec/09 Lead O/S

I think we did this but the visibility was awful and the crag was really banked out.

zero viz, bumped into lots of lost people wandering and climbing all over the place. Worth doing despite powder.

Top 25m was too run out and sketchy for our liking (thanks to not very much unconsolidated snow on slopey rocks and a limited amount of not frozen turf), so we bailed into the grade I gully on the left - which was rather well packed with snow and mighty enjoyable to boot. Oh yeah - as if to make us feel completely inept, several parties strolled up the aforementioned top pitch!
