Warm day. Ice melting. Decent enough climb. Would be better with 60m ropes. Belays not great.

Start of top ice pitch a bit poorly formed- Looked a good tech 4 with no decent belay at the bottom (ice to thin and aerated for screws). Continued up snow gulley to top.

IAmAStone - AltLd O/S - Feb/11 with Charlie Jefferson

Nice climb with good early ice pitch, not quite in condition with lots of unconsolidated snow which made this a bit spicy. Not sure if we went the correct route after the snow field as we ended up on mixed ground at min grade IV.

Lots of snow. Finished in the dark.
KevB - AltLd - 05/Jan/11 with Jon Evans
