First route of the trip. Steepish start on the right, which felt steeper as I seemed to have forgotten most of whatever I once knew about ice climbing!

Bit odd. alan lead a hard variation on the right, but ran out of gear and belayed at a tree on the right. I then climbed a second pitch with a long traverse. Lovely, although I was frozen and grouchy.
