Big Lee 18/Jan/14 Lead O/S

Wild conditions. White out with high winds. Difficulty even finding the crag. Main pitch was banked out and icy. Tech 4 but no gear for 40m after the initial peg on the right. Easily V 4. Cornices started collapsing everywhere towards the top of the route. Including a large one that I was belaying directly beneath, which struck my partner on the lower belay. Fell through a cornice 60m whilst skirting West trying to descend from the plateau. Fortunately I was a long way beyond Number 4 Buttress. Epic!

Good route, turf frozen where needed, bit of build up would make crux easier.

Very good and technical 2nd pitch when it was lean. Richard said it was as hard as IV, 6 he did.

Led the first pitch up the 'milky way' and last run out onto plateau. Cornice small and solid. Seconded cruz pitch 2. Very cold, clear and crisp day.

Took the central grove and had to dig out a few feet of powder on the way up. Felt very hard and more like V,5, great moves especially in the upper chimney.

Led 1st, soft conditions, took ages. Steve got the top pitch & cornice, unstable snow, very insecure. Hardest winter climb I've ever done!
