Very thinly iced, bold as not much gear, retreated at the end of the second pitch as very very thin, harder than a 4 on the day

Abbed of after second pitch, gully not complete and very thin ice. Good climbing though

Felt pretty hard. Buried, with thin poor ice underneath. A fantastic day tho.

Great route! Good protection on the right wall, with the odd patch of good ice for screws. Crux was good fun!

Record for late start. 3:15 at first pitch. Climbed mostly in the dark. Good mixed climbing with well protected crux. Should have use 60m ropes would have saved 1 pitch.

The route was thawing but still climbable, though the ice and neve were getting dodgy in places. Tom did P1 on ice that sounded worryingly hollow. I got the mixed P2, which was meant to have been followed by a steep ice pitch but instead there was more mixed ground. In the end did a 40 metre pitch to just below the end of the difficulties, belaying on a fairly steep section as I had run out of quickdraws and slings by that stage and couldn't see any belay points higher up. There were several cruxy sections, probably made harder by the conditions. Certainly good 5 but probably only IV as generally well protected by rock gear. Tom finished off on easy ground. Had to leg it down to the gondola station.

Unevenly iced slabs and difficult chimney/groove leading to a steep but more thickly iced corner with good protection in the rock. Third pitch is the crux, climbable this time via the LH groove, and made more difficult by spindrift pouring down. A splendid tough West Coast classic!

1 screw at middle of steep overhanging corner bit, no cornice.
