BenCollis 13 Jan Lead After being told by everyone that there was no snow and no point in going we went to the north face with low expectations. No snow was visible so we went up to check it out. Snow appeared at around 1000m, and the gully was in very climable conditions. Hard neve was a bit soft in places, but very pleasant climb. Didn’t place any protection as it was very gradual and easy going. Started up from cic hut at 11am, topped at 1:30pm, down by 4pm.

There were avalanches going off all around, particularly further below so we opted to escape via No.3 gully. We climbed easily and quickly up heavily banked up snow, through two windslab breaks to a 3rd about 15m below the corniche. As I sunk my axes in the whole lot avalanched and we were swept about 75ft down the gully. Managed to ice axe arrest at 3rd attempt. Climbed back up rapidly and squeezed through the corniche to safety. Terrible conditions
