I led the first pitch which was awesome with the little ice pitch. However due to the afternoon sun catching the rocks higher up there was a lot of ice coming down the route so abbed off on two nuts (attempted after doing Spiral Gully).

Stuart Hurworth 15/Mar Lead O/S

Lead all pitches with James on his second ever winter climb (and multipitch!!) Climb was in good condition, excellent ice and re-frozen snow. Some tricky steps low down and took a while to find protection for the 1st (got a good peg in after a long time digging). Ice screws were very useful for a few sections. Excellent.

On my own. Drove up night before and slept well in the car. A bit cloudy at first but it cleared. Helen Rennard and partner parked next to me! They were off to do The Migrant. Red Gully first. Pristine fat water ice on the first pitch - a little thought provoking. More fresh ice higher up too: bonus! Consolidated Goat Track descent, facing in near top. Then The Runnel, overtaking a big N Irish team. Mostly a snow plod but nice and narrow, allowingme to play with mixed placements on the walls. Some ice under the snow in the easy exit chimney. Cornice small and easily cut through. First proper use of the G2/Dachstein combo, Rab Alpine Jacket on approach, Fuera and Eclipse on climb and mini gaiters with new Cascadas. All excellent. But then locked the key in the boot!

Nice route, Jenny's first Ice experience, and not ideal with us having a blunt old walking axe and a technical axe each, but made it up fine. Nice bit of variety and plenty of gear.
