led p2 twisting grooves easy snow slope but with the "this belay is shit, don't fall" it was a bit 'meh'. Drew the short straw for final pitch of twisting gully which saw me tackling another run out snow slope and the cornice from hell.

No bad nick. Guide book description misleading on last pitch? It says climb a fault and chimney above the belay as the last pitch 50m. There is a fault which has an old insitu wire low down. This fault and the chimney above looked grade 6 to me. We moved 4 metres right and climbed a fault and chimney, not visible from the belay, at grade 5.
