Awesome climbing though a fair amount of snow and ice! Finished off with a dash around the rostwaite horseshoe with 20-30cm of snow!

assuming this is the scramble route. Some good scrambling, exposed in sections.

With Tony & Adam. Took easier route on top half.

Nice sections of scrambling but would have been better if continuous.

Started this but got fed up with the amount of grass and the unclear route. We stopped when we reached Glaciated Slab and did a handful of climbs there instead. Not a three star route from what we saw.

Very wet. Very windy. Absolutely soaked. Climbed in full waterproofs, packs and boots. Alpine style, moving together mostly. Picked the wettest windest day so far. Floods and trees down all the way home. Good day.

No ducking the slippy difs and the steep final wall, but put climbing shoes on after starting in boots and having a rethink - rainy day.

Mrs MB did NOT like this at all! Wet and windy - very slippery, some steep sections can be quite precarious soloing in walking boots. Fragmented - not a particularly great scramble/climb in the conditions. Sections up to Diff can be avoided, but this would ruin the route. Could be great on a dry day!
