[Looking up the gap between the rocks on the second pitch., 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
Two pitches. Start up the left-hand side of the waterfall and belay under a rock. Start up a pillar (can be avoided) and continue up to a belay at a tree 15m below the road. Continue up to the road for the descent, or walk down a snow gully to the right of the waterfall. © ROCKFAX

mostly buried in snow, we left a trench. 50 metre rope barely got us to the belay. top snow slope above the final ice so unconsolidated making any upward progress at all was difficult - pulled on all available vegetation!
