Great conditions. Thick ice at the bottom and solid neve all the way up the face until the last pitch.

Ice pitch at start felt IV 4. Great fun going up the snowfield, no cornice .

Good snow and ice conditions all the way up, and rock gear available with some digging. Initial ice pitch was more like tech 4. Brilliant route!

First pitch a bit hollow but the snow and icy was all in pretty good condition - absolutely no visibility though.

Best grade III ever :-). Steps up the snow slopes made the going easier. Slightly worrying cornice overlooking the route.

Great route with final belay on the summit cairn just as the guidebook says. Pity the mist obscured our views

Avoided steep ice pitch at the bottem by taking the grade I start.

Ice had melted a bit so took the easier start. Did the icefall start 13.4.13.
