A brilliant climb in perfect snow and ice conditions. We took the direct finish, which was a mistake owing to the a vertical two metre wall of soft snow at the top. Found it very hard going owing to lack of fitness. It was hard for Gary finding runners and long run outs were needed with the very difficult finish as described above. Sooner him than me.
