Si 8 Mar AltLd Probably wouldn't recommend for now. Took a gamble but the turf anywhere under powder was unfrozen but good where exposed. Two raps and then climbed out. Fairly wild at the top!

Andrew Sloan 10 Feb AltLd O/S Led pitches 1 and 3. The snow on the route was a bit cruddy but useable ice in places and turf generally frozen. A beautiful day and we were the only ones on the east face. Quite stiff for the grade in today's conditions.

Unfortunately bailed due to slow rate of ascent (couldn't face missing the gondola). Not sure why ukc has this as only III. This was easily a IV (as it said in our guidebook), and conditions were pretty good for us.

Rock sections hard on 1st and 2nd pitches, although well protected on 2nd, pushing 5. Very few corniceless routes.

Misha 4 Apr, 2010 AltLd O/S Phil led P1, featuring a technical chimney crux and dodgy snow ice. I led P2, featuring a series of hardish sections interspersed with easier dodgy snow ice. Phil led through round the cave to easier ground and I finished off over the easy summit snow slope and baby cornice. Good IV, 4. Started up in the clouds but cleared up nicely towards the end. Had to leg it for the gondola - Phil was pleased to get it after missing it the previous day after a cornice epic with Su.

KeithAlexander 10 Mar, 2010 Lead A party was on it when we arrived and traversed off to the right at the first chimney saying there wasn't enough ice. I also thought it looked too sketchy, and down-climbed a bit, and climbed onto the rib on the left and rejoined the route directly above that first steep step. Regret not giving it more of a try now; I don't think it would be too much harder than the several other steep steps above it, though perhaps less protect-able. 2 full 50m pitches of good sustained climbing, another 50m of easy ground, then a short snow walk up through the notch in the cornice. Think we dropped a Z peg somewhere, annoying...

Realised halfway up P1 I had left most of the wires with partner! Seemed significantly harder compared to other III,4s I have done so I can see why an upgrade would make sense.
