50m. One serious pitch. Try and get rock gear in lower down because the ice is often thin and detatched from the rock at the top © Rockfax

Wanted to lead this climb but it has started to thaw on the first 10m making it very thin so I decided to be safe and top roped it. Enjoyed this climb very much and will return again to lead when in better condition.

Top roped due to conditions. Bottom 1/3 thin/missing and thin at top. Late start (4pm) after work but worth the effort. Good sustained climb.

Night ascent. Very thin on lower section. Finished with full moonlight. Great little route with some scary run outs.

First third very thin. but climbable, then good to the top. marginal protection in these conditions. Overall good ice. Worth the 5am start !

Good thick ice for most of it, bit brittle towards the top. Soloed the continuation at the top, about grade III

First Grade V! What an end to a brilliant day of climbing. Dave Birkett and his wife Mary were on the route when we arrived - Dave Josling tells me that he even commented that I was moving well on the route! Fantastic!
