Sort of knew it'd have to be a solo given my limited rack. Jammed a thigh into the crack and there it stayed until shuffled to the top.

sambosanquet101 - 2nd O/S - 23/Feb/15 with Ian Goldsborough, Chris Rushe

Started snowing as started climbing. Got to top and couldn't see a damn thing as snow was coming upwards and tearing face to shreds. Ellie tried to come up but struggled with the start. Izzy then tried, got further up and stripped the lower bits of gear but then asked to be lowered off. Had to ab down a couple of meters to retrieve last bit of gear, a bastard slotter that was bomber gear but an arse to get out when wanting to run away. Rapidly dismantled belay, coiled rope and ended up taking the long descent in rock boots on snow and ice - sketchy. Didn't die/get frostbite - win! Then had the slightly twitchy-bum drive back down to Hathersage as the snow was settling on the road. Izzy was v. stressed and we lost the back end a couple of times but all survived.
