Rockfax Description
2 pitches. Located in a chimney deep in the Upper Gorge. Start up the first pitch on fairly easy snowy terrain. The second pitch offers varied steep ice climbing. The waterfall ends in the middle of the wall so drill ice anchors for the descent. © Rockfax

Good ice all the way. Highlight of the weekend. I found the second pitch pretty steep and sustained. Top belay was in-situ slings with maillon around a block (as opposed to the guidebook bolted belay) and the half-way belay and abseil point was to in-situ bala-threads without maillon. The guidebook description is odd: we walked up easy slope to the what we would describe as the first pitch. Did then a full rope length (50m) on quite steep ice and then a second 40m to the top with some bridging out of the left rock wall.

Soloed up easy snow to first belay. Led the next two pitches up to an abalakov at the foot of a thin pillar, where unconsolidated snow and loose blocks of rock persuaded me to end the climb.

Soloed to first belay due to ice being too crumby to take any protection, decided to retreat as pillar was thin and dripping with a fracture

Three pitches, stopped at the start of the very narrow part. A very worthy ending to our visit.

I did the first pitch and Lars did the harder second pitch. Nice route, especially the second pitch.

Amazing route, lovely exposure. Slightly ruined by my partner ruining the hanging belay somewhat.

James led, didn't do top narrower section of gully - the ice wasn't complete

An excellent climb with a tough second pitch, in hard WI5 condition.
