Plenty snow and spindrift. Little gear.olekemi - Lead O/S - 09/Feb/14 with Simon T, Graham D
Little gear on the route most it was buried. Summit ridge was a snow arÍte so no gear on final belay.

Thawing rapidly! Good enough route for a short day, didn't fancy topping out at the summit in the hellish wind!

A nice route for a quick nip up! Seemed a little spicier than the guide book grade. Good alternative finish up through a nose is interesting. A slight traverse back along to the start of tower ridge and an abseil into the gully was ideal descent.

The ice that remains was ok and turf still just about frozen in places, however, it's all disappearing fast!

Climbed this after Vanishing Gully. Proved trickier than expected as the ice was lean in places.

Fine, if slightly unconsolidated.
Did a left hand variation of the top pitch, following a corner, with no turf and unconsolidated snow, it probably went at upper end 4, possibly 5. Otherwise, the top two pitches are grade 1.5 snow slopes!
