Almost all the climable ice has gone or is about to go. Nice day out though!

Starting to thaw quite badly, with running water visible. Most of the top outs have been hacked to bits; but plenty of ice left on the main fall.

After work in the dark, good conditions but some crud. Great fun

Lots of ice but running with water underneath, dry gully below with weird and deadly plate ice waiting to trap your feet in the dry rocks underneath! Used an ice screw, found it harder in my G12's than when I did it in Terminators.
Stuart Hurworth - AltLd O/S - 04/Feb/15 with Andrew Stratford
Soloed all the small pitches, roped up for the big one.
Night time ascent again, great fun

Terrific route to get done in early April, took the easy line up one of the pitches so probably no more than grade II on that route but still great fun.
Andrew Lodge - Solo - 07/Apr/13 with Steve
Lots of ice still there on the shaded lower and biggest falls, got my feet wet falling through the pools a couple of times though. Main pitch was steepest ice I've climbed yet!
Stuart Hurworth - Solo O/S - 06/Apr/13
Nice to finish it after falling on it last year and stabbing my ice axe into my arm! Good condition.

Luke dealing with his demons after his fall last year. 6th time this season and great conditions, did main pitch twice
cragtyke - Solo - 05/Apr/13 with Paul Addison, Luke Addison
With Alex and Dave - mostly solo. Best ice i've ever seen on any of it. Bottom pitch with fat ice, second good, third good but a little thin at the top. Made life very easy.

no ice on lower steps, main fall ok but a bit soft in places
cragtyke - Solo - 20/Jan/13 with garymontego
Some ice not as much as hoped, mostly verglas so some of the steps very hard

Wasn't expecting any decent ice to be honest, thought we'd probably missed the boat with temps starting to rise but it was in good nick. Met a group coming up led by Matt womersley and stuck with them on the climbs which added to the experience i think. Cheers Matt and the guys.

Missed out pitch 1 - was occupied, providing an excellent excuse. Not really enough snow, but almost enough ice.

very good conditions all steps climbable, plus small falls either side higher up.

Nice little trip with some ice newbies and Matt to do the dangerous bit. A couple of 3/4 metre ice sections and a few short icy steps.
CaverPete - 2nd O/S - 09/Dec/10 with Matt Dalby
Good route, access from torside car park. Two climbing pitches of good water ice with walking inbetween. Ice was great and thick enough for screws. Warmed up in last few days though....

a bit too much powdery snow at the moment
cragtyke - Solo - 05/Dec/10
Just two short pitches at the moment, everything else (assuming there is anything else!) is buried in powder. I led the first "pitch", about 4m of easy III. Carmen led the other, longer and easier. Cracking day though, cloud inversion and some deep powder wading across Bleaklow :-)
