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.

The Mountain Goat - Solo O/S - 30/Dec/09

I say soloed, we moved together after pitch one as it was pointless to be roped up, no pro and too much powder snow!
joe.91 - Solo O/S - 28/Dec/09 with Ben Crook

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.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 27/Dec/09

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

Hidden - Solo - Jan/09

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!
