The snow on the crux was much thinner than last time, making it much more challenging - I tried to lead it, but backed off.

good snow in gully but the crux up to the aircraft was a bit thin- maybe III/IV for 5m ? Great day out

Got to wreck. Was well difficult as I had no crampons! Went right instead so I'm gonna say not finished until I do the direct step there.

Forgot my crampons but luckily the snow was soft and I could kick steps.Easy going up to the plane wreckage,then a little steep step to make things interesting. Good runner around an old wheel and propeller if you dare use them.Interesting route

The step below the wreckage was pretty big and thinly iced so felt a bit more like II or III.

Interesting route purely for the wreckage and the fantastic view. Not a right lot of snow so the rock step below and to pass the Lancaster proved a little tricky for me at least.

Retreated into the gully after getting lost on steep ground on West Buttress. Good route for novelty value!

Telford's first winter route, did very well soloing the first bit up to the left branch. We then simil climbed the rest with only one we belay for the fuselage. Very nice for and easy gully with the wreckage(2m of tech 3/4) making the route.
