Thrash Corner** IV 5
[Rescue Groove climbs the large groove just left of centre, Thrash Corner the central one, Dolly Daydream the right hand groove, 3 kb]50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
50m. Start in the centre of the crag. 1) 3, 25m. Climb the open groove line to a block belay. 2) 5, 25m. The corner above lacks footholds. Thrash up using icy hooks. Easier climbing to the top. Variation III/3. In lean conditions the crux can be avoided on the right. © ROCKFAX

Rather thin ice but turf well frozen.

2 pitches, crux is getting very thin but still doable today, cornice was soft. Hard for grade in this condition

Crux looked thin, so traversed to right which was not much better!

Lead 2nd Pitch. in good condition overall. The crux is more scary than hard technically, but whoever left the green hex in the middle of the crux made it a lot easier :)

If you use 50m ropes then your second will have climb the first 15ft to allow you to get to the top belay, the ropes go tight on the cornice!. The middle belay is not up to much.

Great route. Just enough Ice on the crux to bring the grade down considerably despite mixup with gear resulting in forgetting the wires. Glad to see that spike before breaking a direct line through the cornice.

Excellent route: definitely worth at least two stars. Second pitch was stuffed with ice except where it was needed most - the corner above the belay! 50m seems a bit short for the total length, wherever you make your first belay, so don't try and run the two pitches together. (Led P2)
Peter Metcalfe - AltLd - 25/Jan/10 with Lee Sheard

first grade 4 lead, partial thaw made the crux very interesting!
