It was rather wet and unpleasant past the arete jug.

Graham had a go and backed off it. I went up but lacked the right gear to protect the crux moves. It was beginning to get cold and we were losing daylight so I stepped off left and finished up Blizzard Chimney instead.

Felt a bit cheeky at VS, more like HVS. Surprisingly good.

Worth doing for the jug on the arete. Enjoyable.
