Guy lead all the 7 pitches, except P2, which I lead. Thawing all day, except the last pitch in the dark (brilliant route-finding by Guy!). Turfs were frozen solid where it mattered. Fantastic and very sustained route! Started and fisnished in total white out, spending over 12 hours on the route. Epic!

Top half is brilliant climbing. Trust the guidebook description. Moved together on first 80/100m then alt leads. I led crux pitches. Fun times!

amazing climbing with a very committing feel, i led both crux pitches, the second of which was very sustained. we also had route finding issues on the final pitches and traversed left. we then had a total epic getting back to the car in 80mph winds and whiteout conditions. it felt like a very out there day!

Huge day. Not sure where the route goes after the second crux - straight up seemed utterly desparate so after a couple of wasted hours trying various options, we took a snow bay & open-book corner about 10-15m left of the stance. Awesome route though!
