A bit banked out at the moment but excellent all the same. Both short corner and shallow groove above are definitely tech 4.

great day, great conditions. Trail-breaking was a bit tough but was worth it.

Full winter day. Set off by head torch, walked/swam in through knee to waist deep powder. Finally got to the route, I lead 2nd pitch but extended it to include the corner and belayed from the ledge below the groove. Walked/swam out in near white out finishing by head torch. 11hrs on the hill and it never stopped snowing, brilliant day.

The epitome of stonkingness.
furbrow - AltLd - 20/Jan/13 with Bruce McC

Led 1 + 3. Brilliant. Great line. Looks steep for the grade. All 3 pitches superb. Stonking conditions. Cobbler rocks when it is like that. Used all the hexes,

East and south faces are black, snow is still on the more northerly aspects, turf seemed solid, but care taken anyway.

Started as the sunset, so only did the one pitch. Nice, but a bit grassy for my liking!
