Tried to climb in very melty conditions, with very little cover; was great climbing till about half way up the first pitch were the ice in the corner that really looked good from the ground fell down as climbed, however at that point was committed so had to keep going basically hooking up a water fall. Some scary moves and the distinct lack of gear, (bad angle and bulldog) in the last 20m of the corner made it fell more like V, 4 than II. After Neil took a look round the corner at the next pitch we abbed of an ice budge. Big mistake to try it in these conditions! Looks good so will be back later in the season.
