Route not complete. Ice not banked out over the most important section. Thus we attempted variation out left onto rotten snow traverse and almost had a messy fall. retreated eventually after some nice Elvis leg shaking and cursing!

Tom Vivian - AltLd O/S - 17/Jan/06 with Rich

Awesome route, first one of holiday. Soled bottom pitch, then lead crux ice pitch, bricking it. Stu attempted to lead the final snow pitch, but fell approx 40metres from cornice. Finshed on a TR courtesy of Tucker and Paddy of Cardiff Uni. Awesome sunset to top it off but a 3 hour walk off!
