Great climb. Started from first cable car. Snow conditions deteriorated when we got to the final gully leading to the top (avalanches) so were forced to pick a mixed route though the rock on the right. Was still very enjoyable.
BorisVBlade - Lead O/S - 20/Oct/12 with Markus Roggen

Old ice with thin patches of fresh. Fell on Crux.

Route was very busy. My partner at one point had about five roped teams climbing around him in close proximity. An excellent route though with a superb crux pitch.

Good climb, ice getting a little thin. Delayed 1st car meant we missed the last car down. Uncomfortable night in toilets and Gareth missed his flight home!

Climbed it from the first cable car in the morning and just missed the last one down that night. Spent a warmish night outside the toilets in the station.
