saintlade - 2014

suffolknick - 2nd O/S - 03/Apr/13 with clams

clams - Lead - Apr/13 with NB

Walked up P1, belated at a cave on the right and did the rest in 1 pitch. Ice was thin and hollow, covered with thick snow. Very poorly protected. The cornice was fairly big and soft - needed clear a layer of 1 metre of snow. In today's conditions, V 4/5.
masa-alpin - Lead O/S - 29/Mar/13 with Kyle

First pitch was banked out with snow and a walk. Second pitch was stuffed full of unconsolidated snow and pretty sketchy. Enormo-cornice was passed on the right through more unconsolidated snow and a snow stake came in handy. Routes on the other side of the corrie were fat and not covered in snow, not sure why we didn't do those instead!

vaughany - 2nd - 09/Jan/11 with merlin andrew

Varying qualities of ice from rotten crud, crusty snow, hard dinner plating to good toffee. Generally worth while at the moment though; protection is good throughout. Someone dropped a Viper which missed my head by inches and landed at my feet on P2 - Christ, it's hard enough without throwing tools away, imagine being on a crux with one axe!
