Piers led P1 and P3, I led P2, Emma led P4 (1st ever ice lead!!!) Lovely route and fun day out but quite snowed on gentler sections. 60m ropes better than 50m ropes for this one!

I led odd number pitches. Very warm and slushy but still very soft for WI4
Gustav - AltLd O/S - 25/Feb/09 with James H

Having only started ice climbing the week I lead this and having top roped a fairly solid WI4 I dont believe this to be WI4. Nice route all the same though.
