Took advice that usual approach was from directly below but about 100m below the route the thigh deep snow developed a nasty shear line 4 - 6 inches down so backed down and went for the butress to the left. Followed this on bomber snow ice until we could cross the bergshrund (3 - 5 meters deep) and get some rock gear in. Crossing Broad gully here on a belay was much easier in only shin deep new snow with no sloughs as we moved. Rest of route was very pleasant.

On arriving at the narrow arÍte the party above us had got their rope jammed and the leader had untied(!) and soloed off. With several parties below us and dusk approaching we assisted the stranded second and then traversed left under the arÍte.
