120m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Another good route, when in condition. The second pitch can be very hard in unconsolidated snow..
1) 3, 45m. Climb the icy groove right of the icicle until more ice leads back leftwards into the main gully. Follow this to easier ground on the ramp..
2) 4, 45m. Move right to gain the continuation gully. Follow this to an ease in angle..
3) 1, 30m. Easy angled ground leads to the top. Belay well back. © Rockfax

Inadvertantly solo'd the first pitch, split the 2nd in two, with J getting the 1st half. abandoned 3rd pitch as snow & ice were slushy / non-existent.

I led the first half of 'p2' in the book - brilliant. Big avalanche/rock fall down the line of Grecian 2000 as I was going up. Got very loose above so we walked off left before the gully of p3.

George led the first pitch (pitch 2 in the guide book). A large rock fall then scared me a bit. I led the next pitch, but it was cut short; we escaped off left as upper gully was not in condition.

Absolutely fantastic conditions. Ice well formed and lots to think about on the way up. Couldn't have asked for a better climb after floundering on The Screen. Brilliant climb, finishing a brilliant day in the Kitchen.

I had middle pitch. Route in good nick, finally placed my bull dog in anger and improvised a stacked nut anchor as didn't bother taking the hexes at the changeover.

this route caught our eye due to the wicked fist pitch up a nice steep ice feature. really good condition. the latter pitches were a bit less arresting, but fun all the same. bold-ish 3rd pitch up a mixed gully.

Steep inital ice and tricky mixed corner on 1st pitch. V awkward umbrella at top of 2nd pitch, very little to pull over on as snow unconsolidated so desparate grovel with fingers crossed something holds! IV 4 currently. Good effort by Ben.

Easy, plastic ice but quite thin. The crux was a chimney at the end of P1 which had some poor neve - just enough for the axes. 3rd solo of the day.

Led 1st pitch, a few steep bits, placed a few slings over spikes. Belayed slightly off route on RHS on good spike, just after steep narrow section. Good route.
