This climb is in 12 logbooks, and on 3 wishlists.
First 4 pitches, then up the Serpent as time running short. Easier option but still exciting. Excellent ice climbing, tech 5?

An excellent route, the ice pitches just keep coming, felt like tec 4 on a couple of occasions. Good to finally do a route on this part of the mountain.

Did the direct. Whole thing on ice, mostly IV, 4 with the odd IV, 5 pitch. A long way.

What a great climb. Ice pitch after ice pitch. Good belays but poor protection in between, but I only seconded it so my job was easy...ish.

We did a variation on Nordwand starting at a large chockstone on the Castle ridge face, ice pitch in the middle was fat and nice although brittle and not so chewy, top mixed corner in the dark was awesome! IV, 4 overall with a variety of combinations and finish's possible, a real mountaineers day oot!

A very long climb, even with some moving together in the middle we did 6 pitches. Atmospheric, a strong mountaineering feel in the middle of a large face. We got the sunless Nordwand atmosphere as well.
