Graeme lead P1 (45m) and I did P2 (56m). P2 has 2 short but vertical ice walls (tech 5), only the former of which accepted an ok screw. The cornice exit was 1-metre wide roof and the last gear was 10 metres below. Hardest and scariest ever cornice exit for me. Glad the sun was not out. In the condition of the day, I thought VI 5 is a more accurate description. Good route, apart from the cornice.

P1 me P2 masa. Left hand variation was considerably harder and a much more serious undertaking than you would expect at grade III,4. The crux felt harder than the equivalent pitch of .5 gully. Poor pro and huge cornice made it a spicy lead for masa and a fully body work out for the 2nd!

Led upto the chimney, decided the ice in there looked very thin & the snow was rotten, tried to bypass on the right but both axes ripped and I took a small fall onto a good nut. Brought up the others and Jules lead tenuously up the chimney and over the cornice. Good route.

Climbed in a thaw. Very thin and wet near the top. Took the left hand exit from the snow bay and climbed a wet near vertical ice pitch before a steep chimney with very little stable snow. Bridged/squirmed onto the slope before getting through the cornice
