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!!Adamski1986 - AltLd dnf - 18/Jan/14 with Adrian Wilson
Definitely out of condition. Abed off after pitch 1. Will come back next year.

Thin hollow wet crappy ice low down. Higher up some better ice but the ice on the crux was completely rotten and unclimbable with a continuous stream running down what was left. Abseiled off after judgement trumped bravado, but a grand day out nevertheless!

Quality route. Definately felt like V,5 today with some sustained steep climbing below the easy ground at the top.
Big Lee - AltLd O/S - 07/Mar/11 with Ryan Wilson
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.
markfairbank - AltLd O/S - 06/Mar/11 with Ian Moore
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!
Andrew Barker - Lead O/S - 28/Jan/11 with John Barker
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 :(

Found climb in low vis. V fat snow ice. Bottom pitch good steep 4. 2nd pitch full on 80 degree for 10m+ - give it tech 5 on the day. Su dropped off traversing back down into line with axes in v soft steep snow. Biggest cornice ever on the top, 15m! Abbed off. Class route.

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!

Climbed pitch 1&2, due to lack of ice finished up Aquafresh (IV,4*).
Merlin - AltLd dnf - 23/Feb/09 with Alex Elliot
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.
