Andy led and pulled his rope. I then led climbing his screws and placing my own. Ab'd from the bottom of 3rd pitch due to increasing wind and large amounts of loose spindrift coming from the top down though the gully.

An absolute classic. Well deserving of the 3 stars it gets. We climbed it in 5 pitches with a bit of a snow plod between pitches 1 and 2. The route cuts a deep, narrow gully into the mountainside making it feel very similar to Smith's on Creag Meagaidh. Patri (just next to this route) had 3 teams on it and we had this route to ourselves! Bolted belays, awesome ice and atmosphere all the way. Couldn't recommend this route enough.

Day one of the trip, first ice climb. Pitch 1 great :-) up the snow plod moving together with coils. Althe took some big hits from falling ice mostly from the party two up with blunt axes. We a bed after ice pitch two to avoid more ice risk. We got back to the hotel in the dark.

easy, but again lots and lots of people. 1 hr to climb the route, 2 hrs to get down because of quest at the belays! :(
