Despite getting up at 5.00am we were behind 2 other parties! The lower ice pitches are very stepped and hooked out although still fun. The upper mixed pitches are fantastic and intimidating. Did the direct finish which is less travelled than the lower ice. Absolutely fabulous route.
Andrew Sloan - AltLd O/S - 14/Feb/15 with Tony Ball

Brilliant route. Ice thin in places but hooked out.

Classic, classic route, nice combination of steep ice and tricky mixed. 3rd pitch is a vrey memorable steep ice smear, but all great!
