Brilliant with plenty of quality climbing and lots more actual ice than many other Vs. Thinning in places. Finished up NEB for the full experience. Led pitches 2, 4 (intermediary ice-screw belay) and a shorter than expected 6.

Brilliant climb, favourite winter climb so far. First pitch was thin, ice was good on the other pitches. http://www.masterplan-photography.co.uk/2013/03/gully-north-east-buttress

After orion direct. Great route, atmospheric start in a narrow chimney, nice icy traverse halfway, and then a cool ice pitch up at the top. Unbelieveably someone did a shit on the last belay ledge just before we arrived - RANK!

Huge route for me. Finished in crap weather and abseiled back down the route in a torrent of melt water - Never Ever been colder.
