Fat blue ice on the steep bits, powder over ice on the easy bits. Crux pitch fantastic, quite sustained with an ice umbrella at the top - awesome!

Just enough ice, good belays but no good screw runners, 3 pitches middle one on snow, nice route, very easy for a grade 3.

Did left branch due to avalanche risk on slope above right. Lots of spindrift.
