On approach we could see initial icefall had exposed rock and water running, but on closer inspection the LHS was complete. However, once on it most of the snow fell into the waterfall behind to leave only narrow ice chute which was incomplete at the top. Main ice pitch was also pretty incomplete, but managed to bridge off ice dome and get axes high enough to pull onto small ledge, from where next short but steep move was easily protected. Easy ground to the top.

A bit lean - just enough good ice in the right places but with gear being quite difficult to find it made for an exciting climb. Soft powdery snow in the upper half made for continued interest!

Thin, probably not in good enough condition. I lead the first pitch, which felt hard - I fell about 10m near the top of the first pitch. Richard lead the upper crux section, and escaped right to B Gully Buttress after the steep move out of the chimney. Walked off in the dark. Hard day.

Main gully full of solid neve, chimney had 2 main pitches of sketchy ice, with a crux move on each. We may have taken a left hand variation, ending up on the left of the fencposts at the top.
