Quite a deep snow appron leading to very nice climbing, really enjoyed the route. Weather was fantastic was good to see how to climb on a rope of three.

Took direct line up an ice pitch into the Escalator ramp (Drew led it), which was full of powder snow. A pitch of cruddy snow followed up to belay from in situ peg. Next pitch had a mix of cruddy snow and ice. Last pitch an easy snow slope. Mild day. Ice was breaking off easily.

Salvaged something from the day after an abandoned attempt on Brimstone Groove. Decent screw placements at belays, bit of soft snow on the route.

Started up a bit of old nick hoping it would be in and to avoid ice fall from the party above. Transferred on for the 2nd and exit pitches due to very thin ice on nick, 2nd was a nice pitch with some steep snow and ice.
