115m, 2 pitches. Follow the diagonal break up and left crossing a few problematic steps, to below the much-photographed corner and belay. Climb the wonderful corner, step left and head up and left up grooves to the summit and belay. Can be done in two full 60m pitches (but have heard of people doing it in four.)

Led first long pitch, Jake got the next two short ones since he was much keener for the crux! Lots of powder, made the first pitch much more awkward than I imagine it would be normally. Lower crux required a bit of balance, but the upper crux didn't seem too bad at all. First tech 6 route, should have done one sooner.

Really good climbing, I led p1 (banked out) and p2, McKinney led the crux corner, abbed off after that as it was getting late. p1+2 was probably IV 5 because of loose powder and lack of good gear from iced cracks, tech 6 moves up the corner were great fun on 2nd!

Great route, with good sections on all four pitches. In good condition, except that the crux corner pitch wasn't as white as I'd have liked it to be (but still in decent winter nick with a lot of the cracks chocked with snow and ice, so not much hooking on bare rock). Unconsolidated snow added to the fun, particularly at the top of P3. Great belays and good gear throughout. Not sure it's really tech 6 as all the hooks were really good but plenty of 5. Hardest IV I've ever done, deserves a V really as it's quite sustained, though the gear is good and there are plenty of rests. Started a bit late, towards noon. Paul led the easy section of P1 and I took over after that. After the crux corner I went left for a bit, then up and right and finished up Pot of Gold but don't think it made much difference. Got to a belay point 20 metres of easy ground away from the top just as it was getting dark. Paul took over two hours to second due to a combination of not being able to communicate (had radios but didn't bother getting them out, should have done!), having a poor head torch and finding it quite tough. Dropped down the Headwall to escape the wind and walked out in fresh snow, eventually picking up the track. Back at the car park around 9.30pm.
