Good, varied, climbing. The first cave pitch is no push over, and the final cave pitch is fantastic, though short. The required ice was all there, but dry and brittle: a slight thaw would be good.

Ice was in pretty good condition, so the climbing was reasonably straight forward, if a little pokey in places. Top exit chimney was great fun!

Climbed up to the first cave. Pitch above looked thin (to say the least!). Tom had a good try, but backed off. Abbed off tat at the belay. SMC guide notes it can be very hard in poor condition.

1st pitch ice OK, 2nd pitch ice not so good with lots of sugar snow - quite an invigorating pitch! 3rd pitch err! Paul gave it good shot but zero ice, so ab'd off!
Mountain Llama - AltLd - 14/Mar/11 with Mark & Paul
Abbed after 2 pitches... P3 with no ice was somewhat tricky!! Should have been on Harrisons but missed it altogether!

First moves on the traverse felt more like a tech 6 without neve. Knee deep in unconsolidated snow in intermediate gully. Good route in poor condition.
