Climbed in 2 pitches. Ben was wise enough to request lowering off after the 1st pitch. I got to lead P2. Initially took the wrong line though the bands of unconsolidated snow over rotten ice. After a bit of a rest had to traverse about 10-15 metres left to join the line of continuous solid ice. Steep! Extra value for digging trench through unexpected cornice. Watched sunset from my bucket seat belay. Walked back in the dark. Mike dropped his iphone. Managed to get in touch with Ben as he was already on the phone with the mountain rescue. Thus the call out was finely avoided. A few lessons there somewhere.

Completed first three quarters of pitch 1 and ran out of screws (due to having put them all in the first 10-15 meters, doh !) abbed off of v thread
