Plastered and choked with ice. Harder digging out gear and belays than it was to actually climb!

Wild weather, mixed pitch was totally iced with no gear and we left the ice screws in the cars!

Second winter climb, first mixed climb (and first finishing in daylight). Weather was great but next to no snow and ice so the route wasnt really in condition. Found 2nd pitch quite tricky.
climberuk - 2nd β - 29/Nov/08 with Novice

Some snow, frozen turf, no ice. Contrary to climberuk's comments, (who I was with) I thought it just about in nick.
