Climbed the icy bit, and abbed off. Great introduction to ice climbing, but sad to hear of the nearby fatality a couple of days later.

Bit thin in places, climbed far too slowly and topped out in the dark. Epic descent abbing down the gully opposite, involving stuck ropes and dropped crampons!

Condition was terrible - lose and slushy all the way, so I'll reserve judgment on this one till I've climbed in more favorable conditions!

We saw Dave McLeod on Anubis on the way out. Nutter.

Got a bit lost higher up, ended up traversing too far & then had an epic on Tower Ridge. The Forgotten Headtorch episode.

Very icey and had very little and very bad ice gear. All slightly terrifying, including the retreat down a knife edge powder swamped Tower Ridge in the dark and storm.
