slushy snow all the way but a few patches of more solid stuff in top two pitches. Started up Central Gully.

One of the few routes without a cornice. Snow much better than expected though quite lean towards the top. Hardly anyone out - just one team on Jacobs ladder despite a huge cornice and another on Spiral Gully.

Pissing it down and very strong winds walking in but the gullys where still formed. Led two students until coming out of the system and letting them lead. Howling on the plateau.

Took mixed ground to right of groove lower down. One or two moves of around hard II on soft snow and turf. Rock hard névé once in groove itself. Cracking route with great atmosphere at top.

First real taste of grade II. Had help from Gareth hunting the gear placements. Lack of snow meant the climb was more of a mixed than a snow gully.

Good neve. Ice pitch was really short (compared to the photo), but went up the steeper bit to the left - first time placing ice screws, so quite exciting. Only pitched the ice section at the top. There was a nice mixed bit, and the snow drift corner at the top was quite a cool wee feature too.
