LJKing - Lead O/S - 31/Mar/13 with Paul Clarkson
Solo'd until the ice fall at mid height, then two pitches before finishing to the top. Perfect neve snow on clear, cold and sunny day.

Loads of Grade I, only one pitch. Waited 2.5 hours for a team of 3 to lead the crux pitch and follow it in series.

Soloed to the foot of the traverse, which involved steep sugary snow with only marginal protection. Then bailed.
Hoyes - AltLd dnf - 17/Feb/13 with Rachel B
Soloed up to the moves right then bottled it since it was a mega run-out right across steep slush puppy. Hard to protect lead and second in current conditions. Ab'd down a ropes length then soloed all the way back down the slush puppy :(

Up to ice fall met two lads who had tried direct and one of them took a gear ripping fall from 20m above belay resulting in a factor two on belay. He seemed ok but said conditions were dodgy. Went for a look and it sure was. Took a long time to come down.

Simul-soloed to below the Direct ice pitch, which Ben tried to climb and took a massive gear ripping fall on. Downclimbed the steep snow protected by buried axe belays and then ran away.

Drove up friday night, slept for a few hours in the tent (tied to the car), early start, long walk in, epic route! Did the crux pitch with not very much gear! Scared myself but very enjoyable. A little snow on the gullies but plowed through it all. Drove back in the evening, epic day!!

pretty soft snow on top pitch.
Alco-nomic - AltLd - Mar/10 with Andy Wardle
Unprotected traverse was interesting, good ice for pick placements. On the top for sunset, then a long walk out in fading light.

I think it was centre post - possibly south post - with Stu (asleep)

Scary crux - very thin film of ice over bottomless snow. Debateable belay and no runners.

Tried the Direct but it was like climbing vertical sugar. When I dropped a couple of feet in my steps, I wisely traversed off to the ordinary route and protection. There were 2 Mountain Tech axes just above my highpoint, marking the point from which an American took a massive fall the previous day, resulting in helicopter rescue!
