Beautiful day but too warm. The ice and snow is all there, but several small avalanches off the surrounding rock walls warned us to better turn around.

Daniela Balslev 11/Feb Solo

lots of unconsolidated snow in the gully, backed off because of avalanche risk

Third time lucky. Ice pitch was spicy

nicjbuk 14/Dec/17 AltLd

Poor condition, windslab and soft turf. Skirted ice pitch to the right as gully above possibly unsafe.

Not much in the Corrie was in so we used this to warm up for our trip. Some nice thick ice boulder problems in between some iced rock hopping and a nice firm snow slope at the top.

VVV Thin and corrie looking very green with snow only realy on the plateau. Ice felt like 3/4 on main pitch.

Bailed when we got to the main ice pitch, too much hollow ice to continue.

Rubbish ice at the top, kept coming away, not reliable for gear or placements so had to down climb. The snow in the gully was fine. A good day out though.

with claire melville
MrRiley 09/Jan/11 AltLd O/S

great fun in spectacular weather and surroundings with a mixture of conditions encountered - in places very icy and in others very powdery. Crux icefall is currently hollow in places and goes at III by the easiest line
