Not bad for a first winter climb. Moved together most of the time, Anne took a fall at the crux. I lead the last bit over the cornice, and we got lost on plateau in a blizzard looking for 1141. Incredibly fun.

After much fussing about the very bad avalanche forecast & 100mph+ winds arrived late, walked half way up first pitch then realised it was getting dark in 30 mins and everyone was leaving! Did the sensible thing and left too. First winter attempt, got familiar with my gear and had a nice walk!

Very interesting conditions.
melonmike - Solo O/S - 30/Dec/11 with Josh, Mat

Huw Mithan - Lead - 30/Dec/11 with Laurence Lovell

Climbed with a strong following wind. Very bare, though reasonably well frozen. Not even close to a I- particularly the last 8m.
Ander - Solo - 29/Dec/11 with Bad Toro

A bit of an adventurous day out. Lots of wind and snow. Bit wet in places and more like a mixed route than a snow filled gully which made for an interesting top out! Monster winds at the top which certainly blew the cobwebs away-but defo a fun day out.

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 29/Dec/11

very lean conditions, grade 2 with grade 3 finnish. moved together for most of the route
Webster - Lead O/S - 29/Dec/11

Really poor conditions so pretty much mixed climbing all the way - not the snow plod I've done before. Crampon broke 3 times on the route just to add some extra interest!
ebastock - Solo - 28/Dec/11

Wet & windy. Rapid thaw has set in so could not do Haston line.
Pay attention - 21/Dec/11

After a rest/ski day the previous day, we were keen to get something done and figured that half a day's thaw can't have made that much of a difference. It did! The buttresses were black and running with meltwater, with the gullies offering the only wintery way up. Decided to do this for the sake of getting something done. My soggiest ever winter climbing experience! Wet snow plus meltwater blown about by the vicious wind. Axes proved handy to get over a few small bulges and for the top out (going right to avoid the steep rocky bit) but didn't need crampons. Would have been ok if it had been frozen...
Misha - Solo O/S - 21/Dec/11 with Paul

climbed it and then down climbed, as it was easier in the weather. the last ~7 metres were the hardest. Good climb though

hamishjfk - AltLd - 13/Dec/11 with Andy Wilson

Lean conditions. Went up to the far right hand side of the gully which was lean and made up of soft snow on slabs and blocks which made for sporting moves.

Battled in through the wind and clag to find people taking a long time on the route we wanted to do so just soloed up this. Completely worth it for the gorgeous view and blue skies at the top.

First ever ice climb! It was really fun and a good way to ease myself into it. The route was just front pointing and daggering up to the cornice and then I had to grab my axes further down and do some moves that felt a bit more interesting, which got me totally psyched to do some more! It was only 10.20 when we got to the top and I was really up for going back down and trying to do something harder but realistically there probably wasn't time. Roll on tomorrow!

refresher for the coming winter. started late from carpark and topped out into the moonrise. Gully walls were well rimed up and we used bucket belay's throughout. Conditions under foot were good consisted of powdery snow on surface, a crust of ice beneath then firmer snow under that. The cornice was powdery and made topping out a bit less of a formality. Enjoyed it

HIGHTOWER - Lead O/S - 14/Dec/08 with Steve Bishop

My brothers first winter route. Moved together, branched right onto rocks then broke through the cornice. Well banked out, no chockstones to get over this time.

Snow got better the higher we climbed, gully still not entirely full, had to pass 3-4 chockstones, with interesting rock scramble to finish over the growing cornice.
