Thin and hard. Vertical section on pitch 6 was brutal. Hesitate to vote on grade but it felt harder than La Pylone which we did yesterday in thin conditions!
Roberttaylor - AltLd O/S - 06/Jan/15
Some sections trickier than they ought to have been due to thin conditions. Pretty well done by the top, well deserved beer in the village!

Lead 1st and 5th pitches. 5th pitch on left hand side - grade 4, thin conditions.
neilwiltshire - AltLd O/S - 01/Feb/14 with Wayne Horsfall, Simon Kemper
Soloed first 4 pitches, then roped for final 3. Taking the hardest lines possible probably 4+. Great route, done in Scottish conditions.

In good condition, but the most crowded icefall I've ever been on.

Lead the two hard pitches at the end. Crux was actually the final pitch, was a little thin and very steep in places very hard at WI3.
thomaspomfrett - Lead O/S - 19/Jan/13 with Dan Slome
Arrived late in the day, climbed as a three. First couple of pitches and abbed off. Very lean at the moment.

First water ice climb. Sunny, and quite warm, so the upper sections were in pretty poor condition.

willhawkins - AltLd - Jan/11
Great route on alternate leads, I lead up to the bottom bolt then alternate leads up. Had to miss the last pitch due to time.

Cracking route: did it when the other options (Pylone and Le Nuit Sera Fraiche) were seen to be already beseiged by groups. Led the first pitch of the main icefall -- steep and unhooked, so hard work -- then followed James up the lovely second steep pitch, albeit not in a state to make it lok pretty.

Meant to climb Croupe de la poufiasse but climbed this instead by accident....don't ask! Took a more direct (and more interesting) line on the fourth pitch.

Fantastic day out expedition style, moving together and hauling ropes in a party of 6. One of the best climbs (of any type) I've ever done.
