From first lift, two teams were already on the direct start so we did a sneaky over taking manouver on the pillar. Moved together once in the couloir till the crux pitch. Fantastic chilled out day in the sun, warm rock climbing followed by perfect ice, and we made it back in time for beer. It dosn't get much better!

Climbed to end of difficulties then abb'ed off. Easy climbing and bucket steps up most of the route.
