Hamish lead P1 (skipping the very first 10m, as we approached by abseiling) and I did P2. The P2 crux was easier than Porcher's. But the spindrift was horrendous. As it seemed to never cease, I had to climb blind (with no goggles on) at the worst part, which was fortunately after the crux.

Vertical crud at the moment and not much in the way of good gear. Still made for an exciting lead on the crux!!

Quite a lot of rotten snow on the easier angled ice at the moment, which makes pulling over the steep sections harder. If it hasn't been climbed for a while then you'll have to do a lot of clearing. Some of the ice is dinner plating, and large pieces can come off. Definately belay out of the fall line. Good ice screw placements after the surface crud is cleared.

Although not looking particularly fat from a distance was adequately iced, excellent climbing made slightly easier by a previous ascent. A stunning location to climb. This time last year I was climbing at Inverpolly without a T-shirt!

Finished up Poachers as top pitch was going to too much for my knackered old body.
