Rockfax Description
3 pitches. Start up a chimney on steep ice and follow the snow-filled gully for 50m. Belay where the ice starts again, branching off to the left. Follow this ice to the top and belay on an old fence; a beautiful pitch. A possible variation is to follow the gully further up and climb the remaining ice from there. © Rockfax

Climbed in four pitches. Led the first and third pitches. The ice on the first pitch had some steep sections with lots of air. Particularly in the middle, which made it very difficult to adequately protect.

A great climb ruined by 100m of frustrating powder wading up the gully in between the two icy bits. Led P1 and then moved together up to the final pitch. P1 was really fun 3D ice climbing, lots of undercuts and columns. Very strenuous but short lived. Top pitch was rather brittle! Did the original finish as the pillar finish was dripping wet.

Fell when repositioning a thread runner on P1 (top tip: although P1 looks short, bring spare screws!). Lowered to belay then re-climbed clean, re-positioning the runner safely this time. The middle pitch is way over 60m so we split it in 2. Mike waded half way up the icy gully, then I led to the foot of the final ice before belaying, then leading on again up the right-hand finish up the very fragile icicle. One screw at the bottom where the ice was good, then one screw at the top where there was more good ice. Much careful climbing in between.

Stewart led first and third pitch. I did second. The ice was really really hard. Beginning is quite steep, and the last pitch long and sustained.

Great finale to great trip. Led fantastic steep pitch at start, as well as gully in middle. Cool final pitch

The first pitch was very easy because of the many hook placements, and the last was very wet. Beautiful climb though.

Interesting last pitch due to rapid thaw, much of the route ended up going down my sleeves.
