Generally good conditions. Good neve on the steepest pitches, some other pitches have short sections of wading through deepish new and unconsolidated snow.

Wallowing in Powder and spindrift. Went off route and ended up finishing via a exposed snow ridge.

The icefall variation looked great, but we sadly decided we didn't have enough screws to attempt it. The standard route was still fun, though.

Bit of a late start as we had written off the day and went for a pleasent walk up to the steall watefall. On the way home it turned into a sunny day. A good climb though thawing fast.

What an epic day, wall to wall sunshine with great views. The gully was in lean conditions with two ice pitchs of mixed quality. The snow was a mix of soft & firm. Managed to find thread belays on 1st 3 belays. The direct finnish looked very thin but it was there. Topped out in the dark.

First 2 pitches were good, then just a slog up to the the top through deep powder......bit scary getting to the top. Not much protection on the climb due to the conditions.

Today we've gone to North-east corrie de Beinn an d˛thaidh to climb taxus 240m III. At the middle of the route we got a bit lost and we've ended climbing something more to the right of ice-fall finish, a ending that doesnt apear on the book, but fore sure someboy has already climbe it. In total 1h 45 min for the 200 and something meters! Quite good conditions until the middle. from there on powder snow an 0 gear. We haven't done piches, we've been moving all together one in the middle of the rope and the other two one in each end.

Pitched the whole climb ( 7 pitches )first ice pitch was covered with 18" of snow- which needed to be cleared before climbing. Mostly steep snow plod after that. Cornice to finnish. Very fine route.

*LOTS* of standing about with a little bit of climbing and a some snow plodding, did the icefall finish

Simon Caldwell 12/Feb/10 Lead

Some good climbing, though would have been rather disjointed (a couple of short ice pitches plus long snow plod) if we hadn't done the icefall finish.

with Clare, Carmen
Will Smith 12/Feb/10 AltLd O/S

Foolishly started up this behind about 6 other teams. Lots of falling ice and a lot of time waiting at belays! Without the icefall finish, in these conditions this had one pitch of III followed by a snow plod all the way to the top.
