Stewart Armstrong - AltLd - 2013 with Paul Gale, david wall

Very bold, zero gear, and quite a cornice to bash through, but not hard climbing. Fun!
Chris Banks - Lead O/S - 18/Dec/12 with Greg Lusted

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

roberts1234567890 - AltLd - 23/Jan/12 with Simon Van Dam

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.

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.
