NeilGriffiths - AltLd - 13/Dec/14 with Adam
Direct start will be hard until there is some more consolidation so we gained the ridge from the ramp up West Gully. First tech 4 lead. A wee bit spicy without the use of frozen turf or neve, but good hooks all the way so not much bother.

Poor conditions of rising temperatures, rain and high gusting winds meant options very limited for 4th day of guided climbing based at CIC hut. Route only just in condition - semi-frozen turf with numerous loose blocks. Tricky move exiting short chimney on last pitch. Descent from Douglas Boulder via abseil to Douglas Gap and further abseil down top half of East Gully.

Started at the groove/crack next to the West Gully - tech 6 (Yuki's hardest climb so far), at least today. The rest was V, 4 - technically not hard, but sparse and hard-gained protections. It took 1 hour from the CIC hut just to get to the starting point of P1, primarily because of the deep powder snow. Starting after 2pm meant we finished climbing in the dark in 4 pitches in total. Abbed off all the way to the foot of East Gully.

Done it before but this time conditions made it a different proposition, a lot harder! Weather came in as predicted in the afternoon, got pretty grim. Chris did a heroic job getting us off the top, hairy! Hard work getting back to the hut ok from there. Three folk didn't, in the summit shelter until helo'd of 14:00hrs!!
