quite spicy top pitch due to ice mushrooms. lots of line choice on this part of the face.

A variation of this, first pitch was banked out so we started from the foot of Quartzvein Scoop and traversed left. Fun

Did as an alternative to a rammed Quartzvein. Second pitch felt difficult for the grade, probably owing to its thinness, definitely harder than Sunshine Gully.

went too far up the gully which led to an interesting traverse back on route. with paul and lisa

Fair amount of powder in lower section and just beginning to thaw. Ended up taking a much steeper section of ice as it was in better condition and then a traverse rightwards to finish up Quartvein Scoop. I reckon IV - felt pretty tough and steeper than I had anticipated. Probably due to my shoddy route finding.

MightyStew 21/Feb/15 AltLd O/S

First pitch was spent digging in powder, second pitch had some decent ice, finished up Quartzvein Scoop.

reasonably straightforward on the day, alternative to a mobbed Quartvein. Great ice formations, protection good.

just to get up to the summit

Not sure top pitch was all there, so moved right onto top pitch of Quartzvein Scoop.

moved out right for last pitch onto quartzvein. everything straight above looked a bit steep

Quite a lot of water running under the ice made for an interesting belay stance sprinkling.

Climbed by accident due to a rather old guidebook, ok

Long day. Started late, ended up not having enough rope to finish in two pitches. Ended up topping out in the dark. Good climbing though.

Crampon detached mid crux

johannes 09/Jan/10 Lead O/S

Did it as first grade III. Hard, brittle ice and an umbrella blocking the easy way, forcing us into the steep wall to the left, made it a hard one. In retrospect I think, it was more like solid IV,4 that day.
