Bailed on original route due to large amount of powder and cruddy snow on first pitch. So walked over and soloed central buttress instead. Turf well frozen.

Dry and sunny, windy in exposed spots - Busy in the corrie: I followed one other solo up Central Buttress and had two teams behind me. Teams on Shadow Buttress, Polyphemus, Black Spout and West Buttress.

Really enjoyable solo. A couple of short bits that I thought a bit stiff for the grade.

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.

Very little snow left, turf still nicely frozen. Felt more like a summer scramble than a winter route.

Crisp clear day - Partially frozen turf lower on route - sound higher up. Climbed moving together, pitched technical sections. Last snow slopes climbed by torchlight. 11 hours round trip from Spittle car park.

A nice long buttress with some short lived technical sections and great situations. Great fun!

Tough for a II. Fairly sustained. Might have had something to do with the turf not being frozen in places. Move around the left side of the second gendarme was the crux i'd say.

Lead all. Moved together to start then pitched it. Lots of powder so hard to see easiest route, perfectly still. Glorious sun except we weren't in it! 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!

A rather stressful start to the season, with a sketchy mix of ice over powder that didn't inspire confidence.

Rather long day out, 14 hours on the hill in total. Had fun finding the way back down in the dark. Nasty rain crust on powder made the climbing 'interesting'
