Greeny 19/Jan AltLd

DNF, one or two pitches from the top. Losing daylight. Ice was lean. Very difficult to protect. Down climbed in the dark off some fairly dodgy rock flakes. Exciting day out. My partner and I graded it V/ VI on the day.

IV, 4 in the SMC guide. With the amount of insecure axes and feet in almost consolidated snow ice and a surprising amount of chimneying I'm inclined to agree with the V 4 here. Cracking day out!

Not much gear as ice did not take screws. Placed 3 runners in 4 pitches. Belays were good.

Snow very crusty at last pitch. Would be too risky to carry on as it was unprotectable. Had to down climb.

Got within 25 metres of the top when any useable snow/ice ran out. Had a rather concerning series of down climbs in the dark on very dubious belays to get off. Both my axes also broke on the way down. Quite an eventful outing.

Lots of ice. Only took two screws. Oops.

Mostly easy but a nerve racking finish on unconsolidated snow - through a collapsing cornice. Camping in the corrie.

Failed just 60ft from the cornice!
