Snow just enough packable, virtually no ice underneath it and turf was 'alright'. Rather necky :)

Nice little climb. Too cold and windy for grade 6 heroics, and failed on Y gully left hand. It seems there should have been an icicle!

Lead pitches 1 and 2. A little out of condition but initial layer of turf frozen and rhime building. Good day out after heading for a summer ascent of savage slit

furbrow 01/Feb/17 AltLd O/S

Autumnal conditions - a lot of insecure mixed climbing - best avoided until it fills up with snow.

Rather exciting due to a lack of gear. Epic cornice!

Chris Banks 18/Dec/12 Lead O/S

Very bold, zero gear, and quite a cornice to bash through, but not hard climbing. Fun!

Made good progress on the neve on the approach and on the last pitch. Not much snow around so the climb was hard with a steep mixed section in the middle which Joe lead. Took a tumble on second myself which I'm blaming on having only one axe.

Excellent condition with a nice ice pitch. We started quite high up and lead it in two pitches. First ice pitch was lovely. Head wall has excellent neve. I lead both pitches. Weather was excellent.

Didn't quite grasp about winter gear in powdered conditions. Too much for first day in winter for us. Backed off (tiring to do so) maybe should have kept going.

After failing on an unformed Y gully left branch ( tried variation and had an entertaining time of it ! ) we did right branch. Some great ice today with ice screw placements. Straight forward frontpointing with no interesting moves.
