Don't know but you can get a kinder suprise at my corner shop. May be they sell kinder downfalls as well.

There's one on Facebook from a guy who is camping up there. Looked very snowy and surprisingly icy up there.

An ascent logged on Friday... my tongue in cheek post may have been unexpectedly prescient! Was it really in...?

Well I wasn't there but the water in my pond 5 miles away and 350m lower away was entirely liquid....

Yesterday I found some ice just a few kms across the plateau from the downfall - more northerly aspect too. But it was too soft to take body weight - https://twitter.com/TobyinHelsinki/status/820733689885818881 I'm not used to ice that you can actually drag your pick through and leave a line! In Finland I guess once it was cold enough to start to freeze it froze without being slushy at all so even a cm was enough to climb as long as you were brave enough! I saw some one had recorded the downfall in the the logbooks, but it seemed a bit unlikely after what I had seen.

Such an impressive place- worth the walk even if there's nothing to climb!

That's very interesting- so it wouldn't have  taken the cold spell to go on too much longer and there would have been climbable ice then. ..
