Led p1 and the pillar on 3, plenty of numpties climbing directly below us. Very brittle ice throughout the route and lots of water on the last (4th) pitch. Walked up and left to descend by the DNT footpath.

Sparrowmonkey - 2nd - 10/Feb/13 with Climb inn
First WI multi-pitch and a superb to do first; also first attempt at WI4 lead. Sustained climbing over, in effect, three large tier with fairly significant ramps in between, finishing on up into a gully then exiting right via a narrow chimney.
By no means an easy climb; very sustained both through the steep pitches and the in-betweens. Was spent by the 3rd tier, and after attempts at both siege tactics and sports style/aid climbing, ended up accepting a TR up to the 3rd belay stance.
Admittedly we did appear to have climbed the hardest line, however, this ended up sapping energy very early on in a long climb; easiest line appears to be via the tree/rock line on the RHS.
Route was a 30 min walk-in from parking and the climb ended up taking just shy of 7 1/2 hrs.

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.
