Good route, also did it in four pitches with them all having some hard climbing. Conditions made climbing a slower than usual, big day out!

Epic climb. Very greasy in the wet and some awkward/ungraceful moves on pitches 3 and 5. Took us longer than expected, probably done to phaffing

Powder day on the ridge. A yard broom would have been a useful third tool. Continually good climbing with three very steep sections proving desperate to hook over in the powder. Gear good.

epic doesnt even begin to describe this day. 20 hours van to van, 14 on the climb. first VI for all of us, a lot of powder on the route to clear and i took 1 fall leading the crux after i failed to find the good hook in the powder (found it second go). also fell leading the last pitch due to dodgy kit (enough said for now about that), landed badly on my shoulder and had to prussic up the last pitch. topped out at 1am into a raging storm, back at the van at 3 and back at the house at 5am. long day!

More snow on this side of the corrie than on the Pinnacle - made it quite hard going in places. Fell off the hard wall above the knife-edge, but got it second go once I had cleared a bit more snow.

Not quite winter, not quite summer. Wet snow loosely attached to rock. Turned round below crux pitch.

4hr wade to get there. Good conditions on route - crux was steep, but never desperate. Neil had a seriously sketchy "moment" while slightly off route!
Fultonius - AltLd O/S - 14/Feb/09 with Neil Adams
A heck of a day! Knackering trail-breaking on the way in, a big route, and an exhausted stagger back out. Went a bit off route on P4 and ended up on pretty sketchy ground.
Neil Adams - AltLd O/S - 14/Feb/09 with Ally F
Behind two other teams. Second's head torch did not work so 'working' the summer crux in the darkness was exciting for him and the belayer!

Another epic. Heavy snow breaking trail in, avalanches down the gully's all day. No water. Blind ally followed above the whaleback. Ab off and very shaky walk out. Great day!
