Pretty tricky playing about with the cylinder ice, went for the lead but after struggling to place a practice screw decided against it sadly

Crux thin & hollow with huge and profusely dripping Damoclean icicles overhanging the upper section. The easier angled ice disintegrated underfoot

soloed approach pitch, lead main pitch and seconded topout. crux pillar was fully formed and good fun, the slabs below it were a bit 'scetchy' but fine with a confident approach.

Absolutely amazing! Got a bit shaken at the start because of someone taking a massive whipper next door, probably made the route more enjoyable in a way.

Felt a bit unsettled at the start after a guy took a 35' whipper off Croc just before we started up. He was dazed but ok.

not the true route i don't think. We followed a corner about a meter to the left of the main ice fall that i have seen in all the guidebooks. New variation? it was the only one in. Found an old ice screw hole so we weren't the first there. Good fun non the less

Mr. K 29/Mar/13 2nd O/S

First pitch was banked out with snow and a walk. Second pitch was stuffed full of unconsolidated snow and pretty sketchy. Enormo-cornice was passed on the right through more unconsolidated snow and a snow stake came in handy. Routes on the other side of the corrie were fat and not covered in snow, not sure why we didn't do those instead!

masa-alpin 29/Mar/13 Lead O/S

Walked up P1, belated at a cave on the right and did the rest in 1 pitch. Ice was thin and hollow, covered with thick snow. Very poorly protected. The cornice was fairly big and soft - needed clear a layer of 1 metre of snow. In today's conditions, V 4/5.

Varying qualities of ice from rotten crud, crusty snow, hard dinner plating to good toffee. Generally worth while at the moment though; protection is good throughout. Someone dropped a Viper which missed my head by inches and landed at my feet on P2 - Christ, it's hard enough without throwing tools away, imagine being on a crux with one axe!
