Rockfax Description
Another good route that is best done in firm snow-conditions
1) 1, 100m. Follow the large snow gully to a ledge system leading left. Follow the ledge leftwards for 50m until beneath the icy gully
2) 2, 20m. Follow the gully to beneath the prominent steep corner
3) 3, 60m. Follow the difficult iced-up corner to reach easier broken ground and a belay
4) 1, 100m. The easy snow-slope leads to the ridge. © Rockfax

Soloed over from main approach gully, just below the spider. Got to base of route, and decided to solo the first pitch as didn't look too hard, with good turf, neve and ice. Got most of way up 2nd pitch, before difficult rocky section , which had no nice, and poor protection, so down climbed back to the start and attempted something else

On second pitch of route I got hit by a breeze block sized lump of ice that had been knocked of by a team above us. I could not use my left arm after so had to decend and walk out

Soloed first pitch to cave beneath corner. Led wonderful 2nd pitch, ice only about one foot wide, but thick enough for screws. Alternate leads on snow to the top in very harsh conditions, but then magically cleared for a brief view of the sun.
