Rockfax Description
1 pitch. This rarely-formed climb has seen very few repeats and not only because of its ephemeral nature! Start up snow and thin ice through a steep section then some lower-angled terrain before the slightly overhanging upper section. Abseil from here by drilling an ice anchor. Repeats have followed thicker ice left of the line taken by the first team. © Rockfax

Left side in one long pitch. Thin, slightly technical start, then sustained, featureless off-vertical ice. WI4+ or 5.

Harder than it looked! A long pitch of about 55m and tough when its the third route of the year.

Strange one, did this early season in thin conditions without checking guidebook as it looked pretty steady. Once we checked the guidebook afterwards we realised it was WI6 but we felt as though it was WI4 on some bad ice. Started up steep pillar from gorge floor then veered left and belayed from top of rock bulge. Steep ice straight up to finish at the tree with tat belay. Will upload photo showing my line approaching the belay stance described above.

Right hand pillar, mixed step to get on it. Had to bank pitons with my Nomic, not ideal...
