Climbed a line in between Salamander and Brimstone grooves, felt about V. Good nick at the bottom but cruddy at the top. The sun will do some damage now...

Ice missing or too thin after the first pitch so we ended up climbing mixed groud to the left of the real line at something like IV 5/6 which was really good climbing

James led. Some steep ice. All belays were ice threads as we didn't have enough screws! Cold day, 10 layer weren't enough to keep warm.

Think we had crossed over some sections on Salamander. Some pretty sections. The ice was good though.
