nich0las - Lead dnf - 14/Feb/14 with Catriona C

A warm day so the approach was sweaty! Enjoyed first to pitches but a combination of soft snow and melting led us to bail. Looks a great route.

NoelleG - 2nd - 13/Feb/13 with Claire Molloy

Difficult last pitch - steep short section to a small ice platform under a roof then right onto a face with really thin ice. Very balance and slow abseil trying not to knock any of the chandeliers onto climbers below.
