Fun, tenuous climbing. I see there is some discussion of upgrading this route. I would not protest. Linked top 2 pitches. Slab traverse was nails; slid back to chimney on first go, got it second go. Run out after that.

bailed off the top of pitch 3 (so only 1 or 2 hard moves from the easy ground). everything was thoroughly frozen and suitably white, but as it has been so dry the turf was really aerated meaning placements were still prone to rip.

Led astray by solid turf which petered out into mush half way up the second pitch. Arranged a retreat from the first piece of reliable gear in too many metres.

Turf in groove in upper pitch not frozen, route is reliant on the turf so we bailed onto the traverse which was fine as much more exposed.

Climbed in 4 pitches with final pitch from a belay taken below the thin slab. Final pitch devoid of runners and turf affected by increasingly warm air during the afternoon.

Some turf not completely frozen where it had snow cover but otherwise all frozen. Snow generally not consolidated although Pitch 2 had some useful ice. Great route with some exciting moments requiring neat crampon work but good turf to pull out of the steep sections. ***

Great conditions today, absolutely freezing, turf was bomber. A joy to climb, and topping out in the sun made it all the sweeter!

What a day! Camped out overnight in a clear sky and woke to a spectacular sunrise with a cloud inversion over the valley! Route was in great condition, bomber turf and perfect mixed climbing in the sun! Loved it!!

Paul led the lower crux and I did the upper. On a beautiful sunny day.

Found this hard! Initially tried to move out R too low and skittered back down to the belay. Found the proper traverse very sketchy.
