3am start, topped out on summit at 12pm after a long battle with loose unconsolidated snow. had to dig quite deep to get to good ice for protection. Excellent route nonetheless. Lovely weather. got back to the hut for 4pm after opting to return the most direct route. highclimber - 25/Sep/13 with Alex Marchant
Unconsolidated snow, but awesome day out with everyone. Great night in the Albert Premier.

Climbed the route planning to ski back down it after the first descent last weekend, but found very bad conditions (for skiing) so skied the west couloir.

Rather soft and bare. Chris led two ice pitches from bergschrund and the harder mixed pitches on the spur; I led long runout up sugary snow arete

Great route, approach and descent require a bit of care to negotiate crevasses and bergshrund.

Too slow really. I'll blame my age - The Apprentice will blame his 3rd lumbar vertibrae.
John Workman - Lead - 05/Jul/11 with Apprentice
Very good snow conditions to the schrund, after that it went downhill - rapdily, crossed schrund far left (Only safe place to do so) and went into horrible rotten snow, it would appear that there is water running beneath it which has made it slushy and horrible ! felt like the whole slab above the schrund could come off and slide freely as i climbed, Water coming down the first mixed section, needless to say we backed off.

A good climb with the only difficulties being an easy angled offwidth immediately on the right of the seracs.
