Moved together, pitched the short traverse left into the gully. Nice climb.

Was planning on red gully but when we saw the queue of 6 for it we decided on this instead. I spent all of the climb believing it was a grade 2 instead which definitely helped. Quentin at the end of pitch 2 "I didn't think you were going to make that". A little screaming involved when both my axes slipped but lots of fun. Thin layer of ice on powder combined with lots of falling snow lead to sounds like rivers running down slops and mini avalanches

Got up halfway, turned back due to weather and time constraints.

got halfway up and the snow turned to a crumbly mess so reversed

Up about half way, but soloing the crux traverse didn't seem wise as the snow was extremely cruddy. Downclimbed.

Coated in verglas, and powder. Bullet proof frozen turf, which did a load of exploding when hit with axe. Old neve under powder good where it can be found (only really in the depths of the gully), and good turf at the top. Felt more like III,4, but great all the same. Should stabilise over the next few days

a mixed, meandering climb with a fun little traverse and a 'thrutchy' crux. Thick fog and a spindrifty top out.

Fun varied climbing, re-freezing nicely for the most part. Shame about the low cloud.

Me P1&3. Good fun. Ice a bit brittle crux p2 didn't seem much harder than p1&3 since plenty of good gear

Hoyes 02/Jan/11 AltLd O/S

First couple of pitches felt quite tricky, but ok after that. Belays and runners quite good.

Route falling apart + going off route + guy next to us taking a nasty fall = get down asap

scott climbed the direct start. Thought this was a really nice climb that probably deserves more stars. More ice or more build up would make it easier but probably spoil some of the fun.
