Not enough consolidated snow really, second ice step was very bare with dubious quality ice. Bypassed on easy mixed ground to the right.

Nearly gave it up for a boring 0.5 plod - highly enjoyable!

StephenS 01/Feb Lead O/S

Terrible. Waist deep powder in some parts, turf only frozen at very top. Wouldn't bother if you're thinking about it, needs a good few freeze/thaw cycles

A very thin line, but some great ice in the steps. Certainly harder than II in the conditions, and if you went direct.

uncle clive 09/Jan/11 AltLd O/S

beths second winter climb to date she did well with walking axes and a bad shoulder very windy at times lots of flying debris beth took one clean on the nose still no need for expensive plastic surgery and of course no sun today as the met office had suggested . descent via gribin ridge.
