Harry Holmes - Solo O/S - 10/Mar/13

Led P2. Abbed from just below the top because the cornice was enormous.
Mr Fuller - AltLd - 22/Feb/13 with Paul Gibbison

Had to retreat along with another pair ahead of us due to massive overhanging cornice. Abbed off V thread and in-situ tat, then second ab from pitch 2 belay. Exciting!

Soloed the first pitch but decided it was too spicy a solo. Did 5 other easier gullies instead.

great climb. No other teams up it recently.
manwithacam - AltLd - 02/Mar/11 with Mike M

Did it in 4 pitches, Phil getting P1 & P3, me getting P2 & P4. Rock well iced up and rimed, didn't have any small gear so used screws alot. The final pitch and over the cornice was spicy as the snow was a lot less substantial.

Enjoyable solo although the final snow slope to bypass the cornice was a little hairy without a rope.
