Third time I've done this route, but much, much leaner conditions this time. Simon led first pitch-missed a few placements so gained experience in long winter run-outs! Sameer took middle pitch-fairly straightforward. I took the top runnel pitch which was very bare and vertical-felt like a tech 4 to me.

1st ever winter lead, did it in 4 pitches. It was an awesome day. The first 3 pitches were a swim up deep snow and the gear was hard to find. I had to dig out half a metre of snow each time to get to the rock and often didn't find anything useful! After the first pitch I ended up just placing gear at the belays unless there was something obvious in-between. The last pitch was a bit epic. I couldn't find any decent gear after the first 5m and ended up running it out by 40m. Probably not the best idea on the hardest bit of winter climbing I've done but I still felt secure all the way up except for the odd moment. The last bit was up deep loose snow to the cornice and steeper. I ended up mantling over the top because I couldn't get my walking axes to stick. It was the first time I've constructed an axe belay too and I was impressed by how strong it was. The other two guys seemed to have a great time. It was a hard slog with 3 of us though as we had to dig out decent ledges at each belay for the anchors and I'm still learning how to cope with the faf. Awesome day!

first propper winter lead of the year, unconsolidated snow making getting over the cornice the hardest bit

Crowley6969 24/Dec/10 -
butchyboy73 22/Dec/10 AltLd rpt

climbed in good conditions. Snow pack on surface not fully bonded, icy crust just beneath and more consolodated snow beneath that. Mostly good placement but due to riming snow placement had to be hunted for. Must have been an avalanche inthere recently as there was a very noticable trough in the snow almost all the way down the centre of the route. The chimney section was in great nick, plenty of ice. Snow pack just beneath the cornice was a bit dubious and caused a few thought provoking moments. Overall, a great climb which never fails to entertain

Misha 22/Dec/09 Lead O/S

Led while moving together on 60m of rope - had just a couple of bits of gear in at any one time as gear was hard to come by. Took the right hand chimney, which was nicely iced up (even got a small screa about two thirds of the way in for comedy value) and gave some steeper climbing for a few moves. Traversed left under the cornice to a weakness to fight through unconsolidated snow into glorious sunshine on the plateau.

Climbed groove in rib on RHS for 80 m on slushy snow and thawing turf. Big avalanche down the crotched gully proper before starting (while on wall of rib on LHS of runnel) - backd off that and went up rhs to check on 2 climbers above. Abbed down the runnel quickly.

Not a lot of snow but it was firm under foot and there was enough ice to sink a few screws. Traffic jam going into the chimney section on the final pitch. Dark by the time we were back at the car park. Great weather for climbing though.

I led first and third pitches. Nice climb although a bit slushy in places. The small amount of ice made the top pitch trickier.
