Stuart Hurworth 5 Mar, 2017 Lead O/S Long approach! Excellent position high on the ben. Lead the gully which was fun and not too long or too steep! Last move was a bit tricky with axes in collapsing hollow snow. Glad I took my ice screws as there's not much else gear wise in the mid section and I think some of them would have held! Ice was partially buried by cruddy snow, but was generally reasonable. Abbed down central gully.

Karlos 12 Feb, 2015 Lead O/S Great route, but a bit of a one pitch wonder. First ice pitch lovely. Couple of short steep sections with steep snow in between. Belayed after 20m on two pegs on left before final steep step of ice, but should have gone a little further to belay off tat above. Second pitch just on snow before route opens out into a bowl. Cornice looks large, but easy enough to escape left or right. 60m of rope WILL get you to the plateau from the two pegs.
