Didn't do the very top narrow part as it was not attached.

Best icefall so far. You can see why it's called forms of chaos. The shear volume of frozen water is a joy to climb. Wasn't busy, at the 2nd last pitch there was a hole in the middle of the ice you could not see from the right side. Best to take the left route.

Sylvian B 09/Feb/17 Lead O/S

Only last pitch after y de gauche, the line wasn't in conditions "downstream". Did two variations : steeper left (top roping) and right (leading).

Very busy and pitches got a bit mixed up. I led P2 (very wet) , top of P3 ( after cave) another and then the tube. Nice lead by Ali on P1 and 3, some very precarious ice.

I lead all pitches. Fantastic route with great diversity of climbing. On pitch two it was not possible to shelter from ice dislodged by the teams above us. Fortunately, all bits of ice coming down were small enough.

Slarti B 14/Feb/14 AltLd O/S

Lots of snow, ice was a bit thin in places but overall fine. Apparently bits started falling down the day after we climbed it as temperatures rose. Tube was excellent, nice lead by Eric. I led pitches 1,3,5,7, Eric 2,4,6. Quite busy with couple of groups from Rouen CAF but they climber quickly so we finished in peace.

Poor, melting conditions yet the route was still amazing! Very soft and very thin ice in places, but generally bomber belays. Final cascade (steep 3D Gully) had almost completely melted, so we finished here. The route will be gone next week!

Absolutely brilliant climb - ice well formed and in top nick - a couple of places where water running underneath and thin but mostly thick. Top pitch on left especially good - lovely setting.

only did first pitch, to busy then went left and back down a dodgey exit thru deep snow and small trees

masa-alpin 11/Feb/10 AltLd O/S

Absolutely awesome route!! Apart from two sections of easy-angled snow/ice slope of 60 metres ish in total, the entire route (300m) is continuous steep ice falls with the grades no less than WI3 almost in every single move! Even the final pitch provides another challenging vertical wall. We climbed mainly in the left-hand side, although it looks slightly steeper than the right, as there were other parties climbing on the right-hand side (this is a justifiably popular route, apparently). We found bolts tend to lack in the left-hand side, and so at one stage I constructed the belay with an Avalakov thread and rock gear (TriCam). Graeme lead P1, P3, P5, P7(deep gully), whereas I lead P2, P4, P6(snow), P8, where P1 and P2 are 60 metres long and the others are roughly 30 metres long for each.

Penultimate pitch is easy but most beautiful. Frigtards were top roping the curtain on the left on the top pitch when we got there, so we diverted right.
