Something approximating to this - but couldn't find a way up the wall on P2 - just powder over the top and no gear, so climbed a chimney to the left that turns out to be part of Bowstring and was very hard, but protected (one fall). Climbed the chimney groove above North Gully (the guide book P3), but the turfy grooves of P4 weren't properly frozen and there was no gear to be found. So finished by going up North Gully a bit and then climbing the buttress between the two branches of the gully on lovely ice.

Lots of powder made this tough, difficult to find gear so it felt run out and full on grade V.
Pitches today felt 4,5,5,6.
Great effort by Matt to second the last pitch in the dark without a headtorch.

Were going to do Bowfell Buttress but it was pretty bare on the steeper sections so did this route instead as it looked in better winter nick. The short cruxes on P1 and P2 were fairly lean but the rest of those pitches had good neve and turf. P3 and P4 were in good winter condition due to being out of the sun on the North side of the buttress. P3 provided a tricky traverse followed by a really enjoyable chimney. P4 proved to be the best mixed pitch I had done to date. Bomber turf but quite thin neve in places on spaced gear. Led P2 and P4.
