The frozen turf 'slab and corner' alternative to the guidebook 3rd pitch was my highlight. Crux ice smear to the hand traverse was tough, even on second! We guessed V (5)

Largely independent of the summer line except for stances. An excellent mixed route. The condition of the ice on the crux pitch (4) may be assessed from the ground: if the fall is not formed then the route is unlikely to be in condition. (1) Start up Tyro's Gully and break out via ice to a stance on the left . (2) Follow the open ice-filled corner above to belay as for Corvus P2 (3) A choice of lines leads to the belay below the hand traverse. (4) Gain the next stance via the steep icefall that forms at the far left hand of the traverse. (5) Continue directly to the top by the icy groove and rock steps above.
