Steve Woollard - 2nd - 09/Apr/10 with Kenny Grant

Off route at the top maybe? It seemed rather hard, especially as Nick's first IV lead.
robinsi197 - 2nd - Mar/10 with Nick

Mixed climbing. Tricky rocky step on 3rd pitch (steep rock, right in your face). Long run-out to summit on 4th and final pitch. Good weather, but route would have benefitted from more snow/ice.
