mattdennies 18 Mar, 2018 AltLd O/S Walk in was on bullet hard snow ice mainly which made for quick progress, 1.5 hours from gondola to base of the crag. Calf burning snow ice up to the base of the climb. We ended up going a bit far left at the start of the climb up a gully and some fun icy steps but quickly regained the ridge. Really fun climbing, plenty of exposure but nothing too technical. Bullet hard frozen turf and rock was rimed but still plenty of gear placements. We had a mixture of high winds, snow, cloud and then topped out in sunshine. Gondola down was shut due to wind but they very kindly sent our bags down without us. A lovely climb in what feels like a very remote setting (bonus points for the lack of walk in)

Topped in darkness and enjoyed the long and exhausted trudge down to the car. Very strong memory of the top section in the dimming flat light inside the clouds, rock covered everywhere in big growing crystal balls of rime ice, freezing hands and frozen gloves.

Last on the lift in the morning, first off the route, and still missed the gondola and suffered the walk of shame down the MTB track. Amazing route, we did a nice ice groove just right of what is probably the start proper. Some great climbing in the lower part, which eventually turns into a nice easy narrowing ridge. We swung leads all the way until easy ground after the ridge where we unroped and carried on to the summit. Fantastic day!

timday 2 Feb, 2013 AltLd O/S Superb big day, cold but sunny. Start of route unclear to us; ice pitch at start of Easter Gully looked seductive, but that's another route. We went up the frozen turf near the next gully left to reach the point where the rib becomes rockier and better defined. (Footprints from a couple in Easter Gully came up to the same point, although they were apparently repulsed by the first difficulty there and returned to the gully). After that a good variety of slabs, cracks, frozen turf and the odd patch of solid neve banked up on the north side of things. Probably did about 5 proper pitches total, moved together on the rest. Just made it to the summit cairn as headtorches became necessary. Will be back for more in this part of the world for sure.

Ken Applegate 27 Jan, 2009 AltLd Moved together for most, I led the first half, Dave led the second. Some great steps if you want, probably going at upper end grade 3, if not 4.

TimPerkin 18 Feb, 2006 AltLd O/S Did first pitch, but started slightly off route in gully to the right. This made for a tricky few moves back onto the buttress, especially since there was no ice and the ground was not properly frozen. Rest of route safe and straight forward buttress climb but most enjoyable under clear blue skies.
