Tons of snow,lots of spindrift, hard going and a big avalanche over to right, more scary than the climb!

Great route, top pitch could have done with more ice, rather than verglas smears!

Excellent route. I led P1 & P2 (as one pitch - don't believe the guidebook) and Andy led P3.

Stupidly tried used my tools on the hand traverse! Fell off whilst seconding. The rest was good and really enjoyable.

Led second pitch. good route. Ice in top groove. Turf very well frozen.
Ed Booth - AltLd O/S - 01/Dec/09 with will sim

Awesome route. Very contrasting pitches. Outrageous moves on the hand traverse not that hard at all. p2 and p3 ran together. Mostly thinnish but good ice, reasonable pro until the last 8m of the steep bit. Required just to get on with it.
