A long walk in from Langdale, but we had the crag to ourselves. The snow sections were in excellent condition, nice hard neve. The ice pitches were completely free of ice which made things quite spicy! Maybe tech 3/4 in these conditions.

Wesley Orvis - AltLd - 06/Apr/13 with gav parker
Three ice steps one below the amphitheatre made me give this route hard II with a touch of threeness about it. Maybe it was that I was climbing with a thirty five year old Terra. My mate thinks so."Led" penultimate pitch when difficulties were behind us.

Soloed up until the ice bit, didn't fancy it having no ice screws, tried the mixed option to the left of the ice but the huge amount of soft snow at the bottom made access difficult, route finding was equally difficult, had a couple of attempts but then went back and climbed the ice (turned out to be very pleasant)with an anchor set up at the base of the ice, unroped to the top. Interesting first winter lead/solo.
