Led the chimney pitch, rest was soloed with the gully in perfect condition. Some chunky windslab after, just below the main ridge, topped out direct on a steeper mixed section.

Bottom half was bare or thin snow, but then turned into deeper snow where it steepened, useful neve could be found if you looked for it. What I think was the crux chimney was full of neve which made for a fun few moves. A chilled and interesting way to access SCNL if you don't fancy the slog up the path.

Good (if windy!) conditions today, helpful neve and old ice in the gully section.

Robin Woodward ?/Jan/15 AltLd

Chimney pitch was a long time coming, but a lovely little section. Otherwise just wading up snow between trees. Spent too long lunching on top and had a slightly epic decent down the gully and then back onto the route again. Definitely should have just reversed the route!

After doing this nice easy route I fell on my arse on the descent and went into a supersonic bumslide! A crampon point then dug into the snow causing me to spin and tumble. This resulted in a fractured nose when the hammer of the axe I was carrying hit my right between the eyes! What a nob. The picture taken seconds after is my user profile pic. I could have lied and said that pic was after falling off a new Grade IX solo.
