soft snow and thin on the scree section meant poor axe placements, amazing for April though

Beautiful route, conditions weren't the best, the thaw made the snow slushy.

Was supposed to be just walking and maybe just plodding up banana gully hence only 1 general purpose axe but couldn't resist! Quite thin around the chockstones and by general consensus on UKC climbing at around a III - quite scarey at crux with my single axe but felt great !

Thin in sections

Neve ok lower down, good towards the top. Unpleasant thin bit over some scree about half way up. Tricky bare section above that requiring some mixed climbing which merited III 3.
