V, 6 variation. Had to rest a few times, but managed to get through the crux in nearly 1 go. Not too shabby from a previous best of III, 4. I'm told it was in hard conditions despite the powder
Thoms6974 - 2nd dog - 05/Feb/12 with Alejandro
V 6 variation, bloody corner on P2 where the peg is, was iced up I had no choice but to use the pag as an axe placement.

BorisVBlade - Lead O/S - 04/Jan/12 with Roman, Jiefei Ma
Wasn't inspire by the ripping unfrozen turf in the snow ramp or loose tottering pile of chossy blocks above that weren't iced together and moved when pulled on, so downclimbed to the in-situ ab-tat at the top of the 1st pitch and bailed off.
freudy_love - AltLd dnf - 02/Jan/12 with Dave Douglas
After the thaw I used my hands more than my axes. At the start of the second pitch Paul managed to move a large block just below a fixed yellow bit of rope. The blocks leading to the traverse on the second pitch also looked a bit precarious with little snow or ice to bind them, so we abseiled off. Second pitch is an accident waiting to happen. 1st pitch was good though.

First of the season, couple inches of powder covering everything made a good warm up route with a couple entertaining pitches. traverse on the third pitch is a sweet spot!
adw07 - AltLd O/S - 28/Nov/09 with Andy Main
pitch 1 and pitch 3 were awesome and contrasting.
The traverse was exciting and intimidating but I found the steep corners after to be the crux.
