Soloed in fell running shoes on a run up Scafell with 2 short axes but no crampons. Excellent snow, mostly banked out excepting the initial chock which required minor acrobatics.

Alex Thompson - 2nd O/S - 14/Feb/10 with Gareth Morgan, Haydn Martin

Paul led the short but very hard (overhanging!) ice pitch at the start. Moved together on much of the rest of the route - very straightforward - but enlivened by the somewhat impertinent 'Lucas variation' finish over mixed ground to the right of the gully top-out; possibly inspired by a swig or two from the hip-flask... A very good day out in great conditions.
