Intention was North Buttress but we messed the approach and couldn't make the traverse in from Crowberry Basin work. So headed up Curved Ridge -- very banked out although some fun was to be had attempting steep walls of the ridge with unconsolidated snow. And down in time for tea!
andybuckley - Solo - 16/Feb/14 with Alasdair Young, Tom Whipple

Winter c,limb - lean conditions - loose snow at points, minimal holds. Superb Grade iii
coachmacca - 2nd - 07/Feb/14

Lots of powder, but still great climbing. A long and great mountaineering route, got off the snow on the descent at dusk
Teappleby - AltLd - 06/Feb/14 with Micki Schobitz

Lots of snow, started off a bit too far left, but soon found the correct route. Not much gear due to all the snow, but few difficulties. Quite a long route. Topped out at dusk.

Quite a bit harder than we were expecting! This wasn't helped by lots of powdery snow covering the route, but we also had to take the harder mixed lines due to unstable snow in the gullies. These were poorly protected. Would have been a great route if we'd had nicer weather and conditions, and finished at a more sensible time!

The lower ice section was a running waterfall and ice axe and crampons only needed for the last 50m. Good fun dry tooling up the ridge!
KarlH - AltLd - 15/Mar/09 with andymather1

Semi winter conditions, a hard long mountain day out with a long walk out, the short gully high up leading out to the summit slopes can be tricky in thawing conditions.Fantastic scenery.
