1. Start up a broad fin with laybacks to a reasonable ledge. Belay.

2. Easier ground leads to a technical corner.

3. Climb the corner, turning left at the top to gain, (awkwardly with rucksack) a leftwards traverse with sensational exposure. In situ peg runner midway along the traverse. Belay at the end of the traverse.

3. Climb less technical ground to the top.

4. Abseil back into the gully below.

Done in two pitches to the tat, we did the corners direct which was some brilliant climbing. The walk in and clearing was pretty laborious but any turf was well frozen underneath. Thanks to the guys who broke trail all the way to the boulder this morning! Definitely warmed up during the middle of the day but things were crisping up again by the time we got back to the bags.

Plungeman 5 Feb, 2012 2nd dog V, 6 variation. Had to rest a few times, but managed to get through the crux in nearly 1 go. Not too shabby from a previous best of III, 4. I'm told it was in hard conditions despite the powder

Dave Douglas 2 Jan, 2012 Lead O/S After the thaw I used my hands more than my axes. At the start of the second pitch Paul managed to move a large block just below a fixed yellow bit of rope. The blocks leading to the traverse on the second pitch also looked a bit precarious with little snow or ice to bind them, so we abseiled off. Second pitch is an accident waiting to happen. 1st pitch was good though.

freudy_love 2 Jan, 2012 AltLd dnf Wasn't inspire by the ripping unfrozen turf in the snow ramp or loose tottering pile of chossy blocks above that weren't iced together and moved when pulled on, so downclimbed to the in-situ ab-tat at the top of the 1st pitch and bailed off.
