I led chimney. Felt steady after grade IV stuff on terraces. Soloed pitch 1. Chimney climbable, but a tad cruddy. It was melting rapidly yesterday and do not expect it would be in today. Moved together on pitch 3.

More like IV 3 today. Neve, choss and crusty stuff that just supported weight in varying proportions.

Pretty Lean but definitely enough ice in the cleft proper to make it very worthwhile. Exit was straightforward due to solid neve and litte or no cornice. A good classic at the grade.

Occasional damp turf moves. But enjoyable this one had been on my tick list for 33 years.

Rather a slight/short climb but very enjoyable. Only one pitch really.
