Agree with comments below; simply brilliant. One of the better days. The weather, the visibility, and the conditions also helped. Climbed in 4 pitches to the crest, and then moved together. Every pitch was continuously interesting and challenging, and to top it all, even the crest and the knife-edge ridge at the end was such fun.

Brilliant. Unconsolidated snow made it feel a bit trickier in places I guess.

A little off routes on first pitch. Ended up on some tricky ground. Overall pretty fun. Could do with some of the snow consolidating.

Big day out in pretty wild conditions! Knife edge ridge at the end was a definite highlight.

Great route. Very sustained. Pretty stiff for vi 6 I thought. Defo a few tech 7 moves. Lead pitch 2, 4 and 6.

Great route! Varied and sustained. In good nick, generally decent neve but probably not the easiest conditions and cracks often iced up - about three cams on the whole route. P4 traverse was super sketchy as there was no neve for the axes, tech 7 for sure.

Excellent route. Well deserving of the stars. Mental to think when this was first done.

Had a cheeky rest on the crux after getting pumped arranging gear. Great route with interest on all pitches. Goes right until the end.

Led pitch one and three. Last pitch was hard, got a little help with a tight rope.

Perfect condition. Excellent route with interesting climbing on every pitch. Sustain but not too tricky. Found the crux no any harder then the rest of the climb. Route finding might be a challenge without the footprints!

Fantastic route, absolutely covered in powder, which slowed us down a bit. 2nd pitch was particularly good fun. Led P2,4&6.

Humbling that the first ascent was in 1959! A true classic and another great day out. The second ("groove") pitch was simply beautiful.

Typical big day on the ben. Finished in moon light. Thought it was quite nippy but that could have just been the conditions.
