I lead P 2, then down Backdoor Gully to climb Backdoor Chimney. Ice not as good as 2 days ago, but still good.
Yourlead - AltLd - 02/Feb/13 with Graham Penny

Climbing as a 3with Graham leading 1st 2 pitch's after which unroofed up to the basin and down Backdoor Gully (dodgy snow above) Really nice ice on the slab and in the chimney. Really deep snow on approach and great bum slide on the return.
Yourlead - 2nd - 31/Jan/13 with Paul Freeman, Graham Penny

Nice ice formed but also heaps of snow which could do with some freeze-thaw to consolidate. 3hrs wading through snow from car park to crag!
