Crux very thin but after that all good.

Colin Dyer 26/Mar/14 AltLd

First 3 pitches only before joining the long climb finish at the corner pitch. Steep.

Never more than 5 runners, a few of them tied off screws. But excellent.

Captain Solo 03/Apr/13 AltLd

What a day, an exceptional route in good condition and fantastic weather, this season just keeps coming. Steady climbing for the most part with just a lack of runners, finished up the square cut chimney as the normal way looked soft.

Magnificent adventure. Lonely 60m pitches all the way. Good belay below the crux .... and that was about it. Corner pitch at top good value to finish. Mildly frightening from base to top!

Excellent conditions probably made things a bit easier than normal. Gear and belays still poor/sparse

crux icicle was a bit hollow for my liking, the rest of the route was in fantastic nick

Avoided crux icefall pitch on the left. Topout the hardest pitch up corner/groove no prtection. Ace route!

with Tony Barton
Grezza 27/Mar/10 Lead O/S

In great nick. Mixture of good peg (in situ) & less good ice screw belays. Soft grade VI

Did first three pitches before deciding we liked runners and belays too much, so escaped onto the top half of zero. Sadly too much unconsolidated snow on the route to be any fun.

Absolutely bomber nick! Thin face slabs at their best, chimney exit...

sgraham 03/Apr/07 AltLd

Lots of fun. Totally terrifying and completely exausted at the end. Top pitch was not in good condition so had to escape into zero Gully to finish

Richards first ice route. Led all of it in 9.5 hours. Belays non existent, but could dig in soft snow.

Very little protection and poor belays on the last 3 pitches.

Lone Rider ?/Jan/83 Solo

Started off as a pair but mate who was soloing decided to take over belaying. Soloed from the ice fringe. A great day out.
