cavemancolumbus ?Feb Lead O/S Awsome day. Felt hard for a II in places, maybe didn't take the easiest route though. Increasing wind and spindrift towards top. Took the long walk off the top due to blizzard, walked all the way back in 50m vis.

Al_Mac 10 Jan, 2014 AltLd First true lead. Solo'd first 80m up the ramp with Col and then led out the first 60m pitch. Seconded the next pitch and then led out the final exit on the snow. Not too much protection on the first pitch with so much snow cover but that was a lack of an experienced eye, a better climber would no doubt have found more. Snow exit was good and firm with no cornice but no way to protect as was simply a frozen crust over porridge.

Quite a bit of digging for belays and awkward move round at one point and crumbly plod to the top, not great topping out with one axe!
