Lots of snow about which banked the climb out to grade I. The snow on the hole was good on most of the route but the crux was the cornice which wasn't huge but was very soft. There are huge cornices elsewhere in the coire.

Mike and Adrian alternated, then we moved together after the gear and ropes ran out. Small cornice at the top was a bit hairy

Technically simple but weather a bit hostile. Ended up climbing together as a three. Which was interesting!

Great condition though the belays and gear were hard won giving long runouts. Corniced at the moment but avoidable by going high left onto the ridge.

Climbing with Les on an almost perfect day, a bit wild on top but the cliff was well sheltered and impressive.Soft and steepish. Fine cornice on top with a hole through it. Knackering walk back.
