walked up in a white out with rain and hailstone. started climbing in heavy snow with spidrift avalanches every minute flowing down the route. Awesome neve and ice turned to a scary climbing in horrendous powder snow and a then a swim through a deep cornice to top out. Topped out to 60mph winds in a cloud. Then walked off with the sky clearing and clear blue skies with a view all the way to the Ben. Every season and every condition all in one day....madness.

Relaxed start to the day, started at 1500, did the top pitch in the dark.

Went to do Cirrus but found it hadn't formed at all so wondered round to Taxus. Climbed as a three. Started at 1500! Icefall finish was thin, but doable. Just about managed the last pitch without running out of rope! Descent down the ridge was interesting in the dark. Overall, great day out.

Brilliant route. Felt relatively straightforward for a IV. Some windslab on approach but can weave way through boulders with relative safety. Exit pitch from top was ok. Screws, the odd wire and hex handy.

In good condition, no other team on the route !

krusty23 21/Feb/10 2nd

Lots of traffic on route due to a late start, over an hour wait at the base after the snow plod, then same again on the 1st stance, lots of debris coming down - painful! top pitches exciting and a great finish to a cold day!

Went on a Friday to avoid the crowds, but it was heaving. A stupidly fast walk up put us second on the route though. Nice route, fat ice, seemed closer to 3 than 4 in these conditions.

lithos 12/Feb/10 AltLd

last pitch was a bit bare after following the masses who has smashed it to bits. nice delicate traverse out of the top corner.

Will Smith 12/Feb/10 AltLd O/S

Done in 3 pitches. I led the middle one up stonking ice which took solid screws, very good time to try out my new leashless set up. Rob led the last pitch which had had almost all the ice knocked off. This left it as a tricky mixed pitch with little gear but in a brilliant exposed position.

Excellent route and a wonderful day. Clear blue skies and good ice. Two ice pitches in hte lower section. Ice slightly brittle in places on the icefall finish, but generally good.

bit lean,cave pitch very sketchy,bit of mixed at top

NathanP 15/Feb/09 AltLd

Banked out at the bottom but some unconsolidated snow and thin ice higher. Good climb. Foolishly had only taken 2 ice screws so detoured around main part of the icefall finish.
