Follow the snow line under the buttress then ascend short groove with possible ice flow past fixed peg to top.

Good ice pitch left of the pinnacle made for a good finish to a great day.

Moved together. Assuming it is this route, takes the steep ice behind the mini tower (back jams for rests!). Last pitch of ice behind the tower was rock hard but everything lower was thin and thawing fast.

Great fun, last steep ice bank to left of pinnacle was in great nic. Thouroughly enjoyable.

Extended route by taking icy buttress below the start of the climb. Was attempting Raeburns easy but massive cornice forced us up the not so easy finish

Stumbled on this by accident after trying to find Central Gully in a white out. Good top pitch with some decent screws.

We arrived and thought we'd get two routes in. With dodgy windslab the snow turned it into an epic and I was too 'Cougared' after a recent near-death climbing experience to lead any of the climb. Had to do the 3/4 variation to finish as the normal exit was really dangerously avalanche prone with a loaded cornice. Sole of my boot came off on the descent! Arrived back at the North Face car park at 1am, a mere 17 hours after we left it!
