In good nick, some quite thin ice on steep sections but technically easy as so many steps / hooks from previous ascents.

Initial difficulty getting over the schrund as it was pretty dry and previous ways over had apparently collapsed. Went to the left 7.5 hours schrund to breche, 3 hours rap to the glacier.
