Excellent icefall at the bottom, well iced slabs to terrace. Finished up steeper buttress on right via yet more ice.

First pitch was a variation. Felt quite tough and integrity of ice was variable. At time felt top end of grade.

Led the left hand start. A bit steeper, harder and longer than the right hand start. Pretty easy after that, but picked out a few interesting bits of ice higher up...

TAG_UTLEY 31/Jan/15 AltLd O/S

not the earliest start, but got up in good time to climb, looked at tower gully, but very busy so opted for this, which was superb. Lots of nicely iced up bits of rock, used a screw, and slings to protect most. Really nice section of sub-vertical ice to contend with, then easy top out on snow. Climbed in a three which was a little slow. Ended with walk off down Y-Gribin ridge, which was nicely snowed up.

We started just right of the guidebook recommended start and managed to pick out some nice, steep icy steps. Really enjoyed this climb with Rob. We only needed a couple of ice screws and some slings to protect it. Downclimbed the Gribin Ridge by headtorch afterwards, which was quite tricky.

Fat ice made this very steep. Told dad we could run up this quickly on the way home! It was an unexpectedly exciting pitch, pretty much ran it in to 1 because there was nowhere to belay the ice and snow was so thick. Down-climbed the snow ramp to the bottom. Excellent, proper ice climbing!

Middle start well-formed with fat ice. Led (very tentatively) up that and belayed off a block and a nut whilst Ewan romped up and towed the rope up the next 50m from where we soled to the top on perfect low-angle neve.

Mini epic getting off and down to the car - headtorches in a white out makes for awkward navigation

Simon led the interesting first pitch - quite a challenge to follow in walking crampons with straight axes, but I got there in the end. Led an easier pitch above (my first winter lead) and then ran out a couple of rope lengths to the plateau.
