I lead P1 and the big P4. Great route. Managed to get up the route first and avoid the crowds that were following.

Superb climb. Very busy but very worth it!

A highway of ice! Even this year where most icefalls are too thin to climb. Consequently, a highway of traffic as well!

BUSY. Led pitches 2 & 4. Lower pitches hooked-out. Climbed the right side of the final icefall, which was a lot less hooked-out and hard for the grade. The best route of the trip.

Day 2 of a 3 day ice climbing course with Chamonix Experience - fantastic! Did multiple accents of the final pitch on slightly different routes.

Mega climb, has everything. Steep sections finishing up a tight gully.
darrencabowabo - 2nd - 20/Feb/13

Chute at the top a touch Scottish I thought. Fine outing, though Paul thought it a bit boring. Very stepped out.

An excellent day out, in impressive mountain surroundings. We took right-hand line on crux pitch above terrace: steep and sustained. Looked like staying left would make it a fair bit easier. Led P1&2. Route of the week. (Best descent: ab back to mid terrace, then walk down on right facing out.)

Nice route in nice soroundings, but way to many people on a saterday! 4 parties climbing the last pitch at the same time! Luckely we where there before the main group of people.

Cracking route: middle section very easy but the last pitch is superb and sustained. Had a bit of a special moment with a stuck axe at the top of the vertical section, a long way above gear... time to file down the first tooth a bit!

Very sunny day again. In fact, very hot. Ice was melting again. Though the sun didn't get on it until afternoon. Fair a few French and English people on it. We didn't do the top pitch as it was getting late. Abseiled off after the top bulge.
Skinny Kin - Lead O/S - 13/Mar/09 with John Flitcroft

Pitches 1 and 2 only. Having a bad day with serious stomach cramps. Seconded the second pitch via the steepest possible line, then went back and led the first pitch.

did the usual of skipping the first pitch and doing it at the end of the day. shouted at some italians for abseiling on top of us.

Tried Patri Droite but it was running with water so the left was a worthy substitute - worth 3 stars as last couple of pitches are excellent.
