Rockfax Description
140m. Initially poorly defined although usually spotted by a little icy corner approx 100m up the hill from Central Gully. Climb icy steps with good stances until the well defined upper gully is entered. Either climb this direct or exit via the steep little pitch on the right wall. A very reliable early season route. © Rockfax

Nikki should have been with us but had forgotten her helmet, so we sent her down. Good job as it turned out as she only had walking crampons and had clearly not done anything before and the gully was in fine condition with a long section of about WI 2/3 on the first pitch. Dorine did P2 starting with the usual icy wall, which was a bit broken today. I lead the straight continuation with a short ice pitch with interesting umbrella.

Snow on approach slopes softish graupel but dry. Started up first pitch on mix of good ice and pretty poor ice in places, but some good turf in general, sparse gear. Good belay for partner to lead up to the window to another okay belay. I led final pitch, up some nice ice on left, although in back of main crack, very soft and kicking through to running water/slush. OK if kept to sides and using turf on either sides. Bomber belay at top to bring up 2nd. Great route, just a bit sparse and cruddy in places.

Good quality route HOWEVER a team climbing above on the "Wall & Groove Finish" were hacking it to pieces and were sending down LARGE BLOCKS OF ICE (without warning), a couple of which hit me resulting in a cut face and a bruised arm.

Grabbed a glorious weekend in the lakes, high pressure system, beautiful, cold, bright sunshine, perfect conditions; views as far as you like. A long walk in to Great End, (absolutely knackering carrying so much gear), place was packed but managed to get on the route without queueing. Overall not too difficult, Keith led, I folowed easily but need more practise and confidence before I lead. At the 'window' took the right hand icefall, quite steep and exhausting on legs removing ice screws. Keith wantedto do SE Gully but I was too tired. Grand day out!

Led pitches 1 and 3. Unbelievably good climb - obviously it's all in the conditions, loved surprise amphitheatre at the window. 3 'because I could' ice screws as runners on pitch 1 - we weren't sure we'd use an ice screw all day before setting off! Final party of the day meant final depleted ice on final ice wall, but still absolute magic. Beats Scotland any day (as long as it's one of the best Lakeland winter days for years - of course: bloody global warming!).

Nick lead all the climb apart from a little solo at the bottom. Despite the warm weather the condition was reasonable. Exit via Upper Icefall Finish
