Pretty decent conditions, led the groove line of ice to start with a nice steep step half way and good screws for pro. Good ice once you got through the first layer of crud. Really nice little route. Beware of the guidebook 120m, more like 180.

In condition, but the ice build up was on the thin side - especially on first pitch - hard to protect.
biggianthead - 28/Dec/14 with T
Started with 2 steep ice pitches (IV). Lead snow slope.
Fantastic conditions and weather.

Last of the day. Perfect ice & neve, an unalloyed joy to climb.

Slightly sugary ice low down, but plenty of solid stuff as well. Rock very iced up making it hard to find suitable belays. Great day out.

Very thin/mixed bottom pitch, top pitches were in reasonable though lean nick.

Run out without much gear, Ice was crud. Second pitch variation looks good. May return to do it one day.

Quite pleasant route but hardy any protection. Pretty straightforward climbing.
jamestheyip - AltLd O/S - 23/Jan/11 with Ben Taylor
Really good though the chimney at the start wasn't really a chimney more a thin piece of ice. Greg led the second pitch, snow slope, and I did the third pitch the ice fall. It was amazing!

Well plastered but variable condition. Steep ice pitch to start, easy snow plod across the snow field, the steep ice pitch was quite banked out and very questionable ice (wobbly ice screws!) then a couple more easy pitches to the top. Snow on the finish was questionable having been in the sun. We had real trouble finding good belays which could have been because they were buried under all the snow.

Lead first and third of four pitches. Poor weather. Snow soft on easier angled sections but good snow-ice on steep third pitch. Rock buried. Gear difficult to find.

Climbed through the clouds on good ice and neve. A good little route.

Solid though hollow ice to start, then good neve (the powder having been partly cleared by an avalanche sometime in the previous few days). Ice above the snowfield was vanishingly thin so finished up the snow/ice gully on the left. Finished via summit, CMD arete, and 1000 foot bum slide to CIC hut.
