Done in four pitches with III, 4 finish. Moved together with me in front over the approach sections, with Martin leading all pitches on the buttress. Soft snow but good frozen turf. Outstanding alpine day.

Stunning day and stunning route. Snow a bit unhelpful at times. Not a soft touch by any means.
Fiona Reid - AltLd O/S - 16/Feb/14 with Mike

Great line and situation. A lot of excavation required at times due to snow volumes.

Powder snow on frozen turf but excellent route.

Followed on from North gully. A perfect clear cold winters day.The summit cliff looked incredibly steep and intimidating from a distance but was actually ok to solo.

Stiff for grade II if using one axe. Well recommended!
