Pretty poor condition, we only really saw ice on the first pitch, then just a very long gully full of unconsolidated scary snow!

In fairly bad nick still, needs a few freeze thaw cycles for it to become nicely iced. Walk in was long and arduous due to the depth of powder

First winter route for Jonno. The hanging ice in P1 had a metre-wide hollow behind and was not climbable. We circumvented it 3 metres from the right (P1 30m). We met other 4 short sections that were as tough as P1 in later 4 pitches. After P2 (60m), we moved together, I leading and occasionally belaying to protect those short hard sections. It took 4 hours. No visibility all day. -2 degC at the start and 0 degC at the plateau at 4pm.

ice on the first pitch was pretty cruddy, backed off after second pitch due to large quantities of unstable windslab...

Pitched first pitch then moved together, first pitch pretty cruddy the rest banked out.... Also a curling cornice ready to go at the top! Still, nice climb and brilliant views from the top!

Adrian lead the two hard pitches, fantastic climb with continued interesting sections, in a superb setting.

Excellent conditions and a very sociable day on the route. Last few rope lengths go on a bit though!

Awesome. Very long and we were a bit slow. 14 hours car to car!

A good climb with some intresting ice steps. The walk in was not so good! Windy and hard work breaking trail. Found Andy Nisbet's lost axe

Always a great climb. The entry ice pitch was pretty steep this time and there was some slab dodging higher up but lovely ice pitches.

Took direct start up icefall. Great route but lost 2 BD ice screws due to caritool gate popping open, near the top. Think they probably ended up part way down the gully. If anyone finds them I'd very much appreciate their return.

Another amazing day in the NW. Warm sunshine, all 3 coasts in sight and climbed after a mega lie-in. Luxury.

Hard day in the office! Led the whole route, and took in an additional second icefall, which added a bit more interest to an already great route.

Earned its stars - turned into a bit of an epic which highlighted importance of fast rope work when climbing as a three

Climbed with Andy Bailey. In good condition. 8 pitches, 6 pitches with technical sections, excellent blue ice on 5th pitch. Soft snow for 2 pitches, exited up ice RHS to avoid snow plod.
