Rockfax Description
2 pitches. Located in a chimney deep in the Upper Gorge. Start up the first pitch on fairly easy snowy terrain. The second pitch offers varied steep ice climbing. The waterfall ends in the middle of the wall so drill ice anchors for the descent. © Rockfax

Soloed up easy snow to first belay. Led the next two pitches up to an abalakov at the foot of a thin pillar, where unconsolidated snow and loose blocks of rock persuaded me to end the climb.

Soloed to first belay due to ice being too crumby to take any protection, decided to retreat as pillar was thin and dripping with a fracture

Three pitches, stopped at the start of the very narrow part. A very worthy ending to our visit.

Gareth led P1 to belay on left side near ice cave. I led 30m steep pillars P2. Gareth finished 30m P3. Abbed off on Abalakhovs.

Amazing route, lovely exposure. Slightly ruined by my partner ruining the hanging belay somewhat.
