Lower crux would be really hard without a good build up. As it was, very strenuous. Higher crux technical - crucial, extremely well-used hook above the peg!

jackob 07/Mar/18 AltLd O/S

I led second pitch, good climbing, good ice but a fair amount of powder!

wheelsucker 07/Mar/18 AltLd rpt

Two good pitches. Reasonable ice on P1 but steep with lots of deep powder. P2 no useful ice on slab.

In such perfect condition, first two pitches had nice solid ice in cruxs with easy neve in between. Plenty of in situ gear making it quick and a nice stone slab to finish with on last pitch before glacading down aladdins couloir.

stratandrew 19/Jan/18 -

The guidebook says it is graded for good ice. Today there was little ice and even less neve. It looked climbable but maybe this was early season optimism. Not only did the Powdwr obscure the hooks and mean digging for gear but it was loose and unhelpful for axes. We climbed two increasingly sketchy pitches culminating in a finale of uber sketchiness to reach the overhanging chockstone. Jim seconded it and on arrival at the belay declared I was a psycho! We abbed off rather than try and outflank the chock on unconsolidated powder. Type 2 fun to be sure.

Col lead first pitch to first chockstone, I then led up to second chock after a few interesting moves to get onto and over the thin ice curtain draped from the first chock. Sore shins! Lean but awesome climbing with a little neve and ice, and a sugar snow just as you turn through and get onto the final chockstone crux.

Alpine start at 12.45 cruised up the pitches until the crux. Which proved to have the hardest moves I've done this winter. Probably lack of ice in crucial place. Interestingly the party in front somehow managed to avoid standing on the icy footholds. Does the peg provide a clue?

Didn't have guidebook so went a bit 'off piste' at the top - a couple of nice little grooves to climb.

very lean today would make it harder than any iv/5 i've been on. possibly v/5? the last steepening being very hard without a good build up and thus the crux. great climb though.

This turned out to be a great day and a route we hadnt planned. Turned up in the corrie and by luch the conditions looked pretty good. There was nobody near Pateys so we headed straight for it. crux pitch is quite steep but I found a useful peg on the right wall and the cave a the top provides an excellent belay. Top route.
