Hidden - AltLd O/S - 21/Mar/14

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.

Very interesting climb. Was chosen as our back up climb for the day. The first climb was being climbed/destroyed by a 3 man team from Edinburgh Uni Climbing club, that took 2.5hrs to get up the first pitch of the Grade 4! Having changed climb to back up climb, this was a great climb and would defiantly go back for more.

lead p 1 & 3 - lots of powder (~1ft) with a good crust making swimming all the more interesting. the fin was nicely hoared, gaining it involved some good mantling envolving axes as too slippy for gloves - was raining at 500m on sun 11th so hopefully consolidating the snow higher up!

Late start, thinking conditions would be awful. Intended just to recce SCNL on the off chance. Conditions good and had very small rack for a stab at DA. Soloed up, around, through and past the crowds and pitched the pinnacles. Ben led through to the top. Walked off over top of SCNL.

Perfect conditions. Did the spiky arete top bit which a lot of people seem to skip with a cheeky snow traverse - shame as it has a wicked step on it - see climb photo. All Ace... until partner dropped her ice axe 40m to a ledge on forked gully and a 'fun' downclimb was needed to get her it back.
