Some annoying fresh powder to clear but some useful ice in the grooves that made it a little less nerve-wracking.

Fantastic route although weather was a bit damp and mild with things melting as the day went on. First day of a great weekend being guided by Kevin.

Did the alternative start from near the base of Red Guard to the base of the crux chimney in 1 long pitch. Great route in a great setting.

Brilliant route: the initial chimney and the overhang/groove pitch of The Battlements were particularly good, but even the easy ground was interesting.

P1 and P4 was mine, Pat lead P2,3,5. An awesome day out and a really worth while route, would of been even better if conditions had been favourable. 1st crux is amazing climbing and the other crux pitches are slightly easier but still interesting and varied. Happy Days

Epic! Got off route high up as there was so much rime and very little gear. Walked back across the plateau in the dark with a white out!

Employed an unpaid guide (Loz) to clear away all the powder and find the placements, made life much simpler!
