There was a party of three well above us but we could not resit temptation and decided to go for it. As expected, we were bombarded by ice/snow understandably kicked down by other party. Fortunately, nothing big hit us. The ice was undecided whether it wants to be ice or snow. Protection was poor with about two runners per pitch. Classic line, great day. My first route topping out to Ben's summit plateau. Naving off in a whiteout by 282 bearing was OK.

Okay quality of ice on the first pitch to the peg belay, quite powdery between belays but the ice bulges have formed nicely. A lot of snow on the exit slopes. Poor protection a run out in places, minus a couple of bomber ice screws. Plenty of traffic since but has been loaded with more powder.

Thick fog and Dave's memory meant we started the climb 30m further right on Number three gully buttress. Dave lead the first pitch. I lead a direct variation to the above of 10m ice in a slightly awkward corner, followed by 50m of snow ploughing. At this point we realised we weren't in the right place but also couldn't figure out where we lost the route. Dave had a go at the corner of Quickstep (V 5) but it was very thin. We abseiled back to the bottom with a bit of faff and our first two abalakov threads

Wasn't stepped out or banked out which made for fun steep climbing. Another pair on route made for a sociable climb! No cornice, topped out as it was getting dark.

Split it into 5 pitches. John won rock, paper, scissors so took the first two pitches which he lead like a beast despite having to wait behind a party of two at both belays. We then switched leads and I took the next two. These were pretty epic with the 4th pitch wiping me out, though thanks so it being pretty hacked out and screwing into pre-screwed holes I managed to get to the top. For the final pitch we swapped again, something I was very glad of, and John took us up and over the cornice.

Did Not Finish doesn't really sum it up. we didn't fucking start! I was literally 10m away from the first belay and then i got smacked on the left cheek by a piece of ice, big gash, deep, ended up with three stitches. Fuck! it would have been my first proper winter route and it was good conditions. So pissed off! Oh well it's not like its going anywhere...

Very enjoyable route with good protection. Calves were aching on the last pitch so I used just 1 screw 10m above the belay then did the last 30 in a quick run out. Nick wasnt too happy but you could see he felt the same pain when he topped out. The iron hard neve was really tearing at or legs by this point. Fab weather and conditions though.

Great Day, finished in dark. Got down to golf club to be met by police. Banjo & Stu had mistook our climbing calls for cries of help & called Mountain Rescue. They weren't too concerned but police made spot check.

Mostly soloed except one pitch that Dave led. Well banked out, good snow-ice - grade 3 in that condition.

Great route for a quick nip up the Ben. Colin led in good style but had a bit of a contretemps with a Derwent Hill instructor who was belaying a rather slow novice who was chucking down a lot of ice onto our heads: this instructor (best left as anon) wouldn't allow Colin to share the belay - who had run out 50m of rope with no runners so wasn't best pleased! One short, steep ice pitch - but not a grade iv surely?
