Decided on doing this when Tower Ridge looked too wet. Sadly this was also wet, and this led to slow going especially around the crux chimney pitch.

Moved together an occasionally pitched with Jack. Climbed behind Will and Adam. Stunning weather and a fun outing, apart from a very scary moment with a huge moving block!

Had planned to go do Ledge Route but seen that this was completely snow free and the only part of the hill in sunshine, had been on the hit list for a while anyway. Crazy exposure on the flaky crux chimney !

Cold, wet and windy but thoroughly enjoyable. A couple of good spicy bits for a moderate. Certainly worthy of 3 stars.

An amazing route, especially as my first winter climb, and first mountain route. Some ice and a dusting of snow - axes and crampons in places. Beautiful still clear day. Descended #4 Gully.

crazy pierre 15/Jun/10 2nd O/S

Good scrambling and some decent mod pitches. Solo'd mostly, watch out for a tricky pitch after a very loose section before the ridge. Extremely atmospheric, especially once the ridge is gained. Watch out for deer on the approach!

A mass ascent done late on Friday after walking up to the CIC hut for the weekend. Snow and ice looked dodgy so did this in summer condition (i.e. it rained most of the way). Climbing wet rock in scarpa vegas is interesting.
