Some nice bits of ice, and snow firm where needed, small cornice. Evil wind on topping out!

Lots of graupel. Lots and lots. So much so we left the gully for a bit and ascended up to its right for a while. Topping out was a bit of a wrestle but good fun.

Looked nice and inviting so went for an impromptu jaunt up this before the snow went. Wasn't planning on doing anything in the snow so didn't take axes or crampons...probably could have done with them on the last bit though!

Snow not as good as I was expecting, although can't fault any ascent on an Alpine day like today. Not quite bombproof neve, as breakable crust in places, with soft snow, and wet unfrozen turf underneath. Weak layer at about 6 inches, with a crusty/slabby top 1 inch. Where previous traffic has gone these have refrozen hard, cornices also rock hard. All of the open Alpine face in the cwm looked in condition for ascents, ice building above 800m too, but very little so far.
