Luke lead p1, I did p2-A pitch of nearly 50 metres of ascending traverse with about 3 bits of gear, all of which were rubbish. Reached second stance (after attempting to go further and having to backtrack due to rope running out before another belay opportunity) too late to complete the climb in the light. A passing pair kindly offered Luke a top rope over the crux of hidden chimney to enable us to top out before dark. Quite a good route, pretty run out though!

Nice we climb was going to head up hidden chimney but Rob decided not to for some reason, easy line through some impressive ground. Also saw three guys get avalanched out of Jacobs Ladder, cornice must have come down on them, they seamed all right and eventual walk out under there own steam.
