Last of four teams - skipped the last pitch as getting late and ice was deteriorating in the sun.

Chris P1 p3 me p2 p4. Beautiful route. Dangling icicle of doom to stay clear of on last two pitches. 3 abs to descend if you scramble down carefully for a bit to the right. Snow was getting a bit sugary on the sun and as we abbed off large chunks were falling down from the route as fully in the sun on that side of the valley.

Really enjoyable climb. I led P1,2,3. Neil led the final pitch. Fairly straightforward apart from P3 where i took a steep line up the middle, the ice is not so good here, but you could go further left if needed. Lovely top out. Abseiled back to the start.

First WI multi-pitch and a superb to do first; also first attempt at WI4 lead. Sustained climbing over, in effect, three large tier with fairly significant ramps in between, finishing on up into a gully then exiting right via a narrow chimney. By no means an easy climb; very sustained both through the steep pitches and the in-betweens. Was spent by the 3rd tier, and after attempts at both siege tactics and sports style/aid climbing, ended up accepting a TR up to the 3rd belay stance. Admittedly we did appear to have climbed the hardest line, however, this ended up sapping energy very early on in a long climb; easiest line appears to be via the tree/rock line on the RHS. Route was a 30 min walk-in from parking and the climb ended up taking just shy of 7 1/2 hrs.

Having only started ice climbing the week I lead this and having top roped a fairly solid WI4 I dont believe this to be WI4. Nice route all the same though.
