(ED1) Somehow very sought-after despite having absolutely nightmarish rock.

A great route, never too hard but a little run out due to the nature of the rock and thin ice. The climbing up the first ramp and on the top snow field is monotonous but the middle section is excellent.
Ben Briggs - AltLd O/S - 17/Oct/11 with Tom

Pretty thin mixed conditions in some sections - a great route, deserving more attention than its reputation suggests. 9 hours hut to summit.

Perfect weather. Perfect ice from bottom to top. Some falling ice was from party above.
