Main pitch and top out only, still very worthwhile. Good ice on the left, but water running under middle section.

Climbable with two distinct lines - on left and right. A little running water in centre. Road conditions not good today, only 4x4 access to col, otherwise park near farm with a 2-3km walk!

Fist two pitches a bit hollow and creaking with water running behind. Main pitch formed up nicely giving good climbing.

Only done the first 2 pitches, as we had no gear and hadn't ice climbed before. Gnash said we weren't allowed to go for a walk so we improvised what we could to climb. I even bought a new pair of boots.
