Found the top pitch pretty hard: on the RHS it was fracturing a lot and not at all hooked out, with a nearly 10m vertical section... and lots of rope-drag thanks to an iced-up rope. Exited via a long wallow to the top of the rock band and down the long snow gully to the left.

On Chamex advanced winter mountaineering course. Brilliant climb - super scenic, the ice cave belay was awesome and the narrow final gully is fun as well. Led the first and penultimate (hardest) pitches. Went a bit far left on the penultimate pitch ending up with really bad ice, delicate maneuvering back right required before I could go up - should have just gone straight. Felt in control throughout.

Lower section to anchor half way (ice deteriorating rapidly), upper section not there.

Easy climb, very stepped, but fun, especially upper gully. Thanks to Polish team for letting me squeeze up there with them. Seconded Mark up the steeper line at the right hand end of this fall Then led the harder line just to the right of the main route, untravelled and more challending, really good fun.

P1 only, very crowded, lots of ice being knocked down from above. Felt quite hard as a 2nd ever ice climb. The upper pitch was even more crowded and the wind was sending down lots of powder snow, so we called it a day.

An excellent day out, in impressive mountain surroundings. We took right-hand line on crux pitch above terrace: steep and sustained. Looked like staying left would make it a fair bit easier. Led P1&2. Route of the week. (Best descent: ab back to mid terrace, then walk down on right facing out.)
