Great route which took a bit of clearing on the way. Felt very wintery. Hopefully the thaw coming doesn't clear all the snow/ice.

Rob lead P1 and 2 to Broad Terrace, we soloed for 20 metres, then Steve lead P3 and 4 (with a bit of moving-together) to the bottom of the top tier, Masa lead P5 (55m) with (unintentionally) a variation groove (VII, 8 on its own; first ascent; see for the line http://www.flickr.com/photos/alpiniste/12242810104/in/set-72157640366572375 ) above the infamous chimney to the same belay ledge, Rob lead the last pitch (40m). 3 parties from the BMC International Meet were behind us, waiting Masa to finish the crux pitch in off-route, which took over 2 hours, mostly at the off-route (aka new variation) part... The variation groove is nails (a touch easier for the talls), though reasonably well protected where it matters. The fact I dropped one of my axes right after I had made the crux hooking did quite a bit of spices to the experience, too, while still a tech 5/6 section was left, as it turned out. My hardest winter-climb ever. And an absolutely gorgeous and perfect day.

Great day marred only by the bottleneck at the bottleneck. A Japanese climber climbed a direct but slow way thru the roof above the belay leaving his axe behind in the process. Just enough light for the stiff little flake wall/traverse after the chimney pitch.

The date I have put is wrong. Many years ago now. A brilliant day out culminating in moonlit bumsliding all the way down to the path.
