Kyle lead P1 (up to above the capstone), I did P2 to the ab point and abbed off. I have done P1 once 2 years ago. The route, both crack and face, was substantially verglassed. Accordingly gear was limited (though still enough) and footholds were slippery. Sustained and great route! Walking out was in heavy snow storm at the temperature of around freezing..

I lead pitch one and belayed above the square roof. Masa dispatched pitch two then we abbed off the in situ station. Amazing route in proper Wintry conditions, lots of snow and ice, verglas on all the rounded footholds, good value and my first VI! o/

Started in white out and pretty full on conditions. Finished with pretty much clear skys and a casual walk back to the car. Technical but very steady. All in, a fantastic route and great start to the season.

Conditions were I thought great. Unfortunately we realised my second had lost his belay device after P1, so we abbed off. Left a well-equalised ab station there.

Clean apart from a false start when my axes blew and I ended up hanging upside down next to my belayer. Climbed in 3 pitches. I led to the top of the overhang, Mike led the main corner, then I got the rest. Abseiled off from the top of the Savage slit. Beautiful little climb on a beautiful day. Great conditions!

Perfect start to the season. Been wanting to climb this route for ages. Led p1 to the main belay ledge. Simon finished up the final head wall/chimney. Sustained but never desperate and really safe. Psyched!!!!

Geoff did the hard bit, I led the traditional finish!

Amazing climbing all the way, bomber hooks, good gear (and lots in situ). Do it as 1 60m pitch and rap off the slit belay, but take lots of quickdraws!

Bullet hard ice in crack, had to fight hard for protection. Very absorbing climbing.

As host on Int meet. Stupidly tried to do in one long pitch. Axes ripped near very top (way after true crux...) and funnily enough I fell off! Not funny for long-suffering partner though....
