In decent nick - a bit of cruddy snow ice here and there, and screws weren't great but on the whole good ice for climbing

First 2 pitches only. Superb ice but large cornice and dodgy approach slopes.

Karlos 16/Feb Lead O/S

Finally found route after deep wade from Easy Gully. P1 nice and long, and sufficiently steep. P2 climbed continuation ice, but then headed left onto wide ledge to obvious pegs and tag. Rightwards exit looked too steep for IV, but appears to be the true line. Abbed off from tat due to unknown but certainly large cornice situation, and late hour (we still missed the flippin' gondela!).

Split into 4 pitches. Cornice turned on the right but quite soft to get through.

Soloed first pitch and brought up second on insitu tat. Crux is melting which made for an interesting step out right.

Incredible route! split the steep ice pitch in two after seeing the pegs and glory, then realised I'd dropped lee right in it. Stuff in the shade was still solid, bits in the sun where no way near perfect. Very warm.

Good ice. Traversed a long way right (above Maneater I think) to cut the cornice.

Led pitch one, Adrian set a belay to the side of the steep ice pitch, I led but backed off at the top bulge as it was snow ice and didn't think a screw would hold if I fell. Ab down. Enjoyable day, shame we didn't finish but will be back!!

Andy Syme 06/Apr/13 Lead dnf

Definitely out of condition. Abed off after pitch 1. Will come back next year.

Quality route. Definately felt like V,5 today with some sustained steep climbing below the easy ground at the top.

markfairbank 06/Mar/11 AltLd O/S

Steep for IV and didn't find too much good gear - the ice was good for the axes but abit soft for screws. Was very pleased to see the hole in the cornice at the top - prevented trying to dry tool up an off-width chimney! Led P1 and P3.

with Ian Moore
Mountain Llama 06/Mar/11 AltLd

Found the route in pretty good nick, although screws not 100% & needed to clear a bit of joss for good ice. Lead P2 which was steepest V 4 to date. Many thanks to the cornice tunneler! Top notch route.

Felt like V,4 or V,5 on the day. I belayed lower than the usual ledge so led the whole of the steep part in one. Thanks go to the unknown heroes who had dug a hole through the cornice on a previous day!

with John Barker
chapmand 27/Jan/11 AltLd

The route was in the sun all day so the ice was very soft which meant screws were just pulling out. There was a tunnel through the cornice.

I led P1, Neil led P2. Very warm day, around 4 degrees at 900m. Quite lean and what ice and snow there was in the gully was pretty mushy / worrying. Not much gear if you can't get ice screws in :(

Ended up climbing pitch 1 of White Shark and then the final pitch of Aquafresh, due to the final pitch of White Shark looking like it would collapse. Turns out the final pitch of Aquafresh was probably just as serious!

Coming in from Aquafresh from the 1st pitch. The 2nd pitch of White Shark was quite steep for a grade IV; more like V. Very good ice. Shame about a rest on ice axe.
