Lipton*** WI7
[Graham on 2nd pillar Lipton, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
Four pitches. At the very end of the gorge, inside a huge groove, you will find this World classic. Start inside the groove (sometimes mixed) and climb as high as you can on thin ice to a belay under a roof. Traverse out right and gain the pillar (bring a Friend 2 for protection in the roof) and do some acrobatic moves to get established on the ice. Continue to the next roof for a belay. Continue through this roof to the top. Lipton should be considered as a serious climb and aspiring climbers should consider conditions carefully. The first pillar usually falls down at least twice each winter. Photo page 50. © ROCKFAX

Ice was in very poor condition under the roof...amazing place! Will return in better conditions, and when feeling more brave.

The ice fringe looked desperate so we rapped off. The ice was soooooo brittle on the first pitch!
