Very bold, zero gear, and quite a cornice to bash through, but not hard climbing. Fun!

Rather exciting due to a lack of gear. Epic cornice!

Lots of poor snow at the top made things abit interesting. Good ice to pull over the cornice though

Made good progress on the neve on the approach and on the last pitch. Not much snow around so the climb was hard with a steep mixed section in the middle which Joe lead. Took a tumble on second myself which I'm blaming on having only one axe.

Excellent condition with a nice ice pitch. We started quite high up and lead it in two pitches. First ice pitch was lovely. Head wall has excellent neve. I lead both pitches. Weather was excellent.

Very steep at the top, quite an exciting route considering we thought we were on a grade I...

Straight-forward climbing, but gear and belays very difficult to find.

Didn't quite grasp about winter gear in powdered conditions. Too much for first day in winter for us. Backed off (tiring to do so) maybe should have kept going.

After failing on an unformed Y gully left branch ( tried variation and had an entertaining time of it ! ) we did right branch. Some great ice today with ice screw placements. Straight forward frontpointing with no interesting moves.

Yes, it was in. Repeated Feb 07 with guys from work. Took a rope this time which was a good move as the cornice was a bit lippy...
