All falls were climbable, fairly fat with some water behind the ice for good measure.

Some good ice to be had but still a bit wet and hollow in places. Climbed main pitch then soloed up right fork.

lithos 09/Jan/10 AltLd

We missed out the 'corridor' just above the bridge as was told it was thin, 2 out of 3 following soloist confirmed this with wet legs. Good ice and crowded. Did right and left hand finishes, great day out

Hard! Proper grade 3. Lots of water and very wet and slippery with serious consequences of a fall.

Serious grade 3 needed all climbing skills Left canyon early and circled main fall discretion the better part of valour

Did the right hand finish. We weren't sure if this was a first ascent as we hadn't heard of anyone doing it before.
