plain kitten - 2015
Lovely route with the left hand variation at the end (III) which Tom led. Ice was well developed but the rocks were very verglassed which made finding rock gear very difficult. Belays just about appeared where you needed them.

Amazing weather, end of a week of high pressure; cold, clear blue sky, light wind. Conditions good on the route. Plenty of ice to the right of the main gully on pitch 2. Turned cornice on the right up an easy ramp.

Enjoyable little climb. The steep icy start was great fun and in excellent condition. Snow slope was sustained steepening névé up to the cornice, which was impassable at the centre but easily climbable after traversing right.

Pitched the first as had hoped it was 'the gift', soloed the rest. Bit stiffer than it could have been due to thin conditions, cold enough though.

The wee ice step was thin, tricky and no gear unless you are a giant and can lassoo the spike! Nice wee line though, very quiet part of the mountain.
