The main fall gives a short ice pitch. This is followed by aprox 200m (Horizontal distance) of short steps and icy slabs.

Ticklists: Peak Winter, Scrambles in the Dark Peak (winter).

A couple of decent little problems to enjoy

only about 50% complete, axes no crampons. Not very gutted that Downfall was in today!

My first ice climb - night time raid on a weeknight! Running water, but certainly in climbable condition.

Night time, easy climbing a few proper ice moves with both front points engaged and axes in ice. Water running below ice in places. All crux moves could be made easier by small detours. No fun in that though

Not as much ice as previous occasions, but was on the way passed

Plenty of water still flowing, but equally, lots of ice. Used front points a couple of times and even pulled on both tools when they were in ice once! :)

Main pitch half-formed, lots of snow about from the previous night. Had a good session on it though.

Beginning to dwindle away on the lower part but fun anyway

Rampikino 11/Feb/12 Solo

Good ice but never more than an easy solo. Fun more than anything.

Great conditions for this, though a thaw seemed to kick in when the snow started. Should also mention getting stuck in the snow, and staying in the Plough Inn

Brilliant day out, got stranded when the snow dumped and had to stay in a lovely B&B - I recommend both the route and the Plough Inn at Hathersage.
