Forgot harness so used a sling, did 4/5 pitches with just the one front point. Really good fun though!

Not quite the three star classic i was expecting. Don't climb this under powder! first pitch was a grovel, 2nd pitch was good until my axe ripped whilst digging through 2foot of powder to find gear above the wall. top out on the last pitch was horrendous on 80degree powder snow on slabs. Tried to pass chockstone on the left, but too tricky, ended up taking the right exit which was no push over. Sustained IV with multiple tech 6 akward moves in lean conditions which makes it more like V. In short, climb it when everything is consolidated and it's banked out!

Thought the crux interesting for tech 6 in lean conditions.

The disgustingly awkward 1st pitch (3 stars really?) took ages so we retreated before crux. There is now a nice in situ belay there and if anyone fancies returning it that would be great.

First pitch was spent more on the knees than poons. 2nd pitch up the crux wall was safe but in the conditions was pretty desperate. Third pitch don't think we were on route as it was prob another tech 5/6 move. Loads of rime. Topped out in the dark with head torch in the bag at the bottom of the route. Then a 2 hr down climb in the dark landed us at the bags. 12hrs car to car.

Not sure we were on the right route... certainly weren't when i took leader fall (stopped by factor 2 onto ice axe leash) 5m from top of crag trying to climb ourselves out of dead end gully in dark.. quite an adventure in the end.. not quite an epic.
