A superb climb on a spectacular day, surpassing all expectations. First 2 pitches were just eating up the screws. Crux finish was tricky due to ice forming umbrellas under windy conditions.

An outstanding route, one of the best I've done in Scotland. Take wires, hexes, turf hooks and at least 10 ice screws.

Thought we were on Silver Tear but looking at the Guide Book [afterwards!] we did Variations on The Cooler, avoiding the grade 6 bits.

We started via the Cooler cos it looked fatter but joined this route for the excellent upper icicle which is currently quite full value for the grade. Nice turfy link pitch to get to this as well....perfect choice in the conditions as Beinn Bhan has very little snow at the moment....

top 2 ice pitches were not in so we traversed right then up. Headtorches in the spindrift to get off the hill.
