Climb as per Patri Gauche but for the last pitch climb the vertical and featured RH branch rather than the LH wall

Left finish was so busy headed up right after a bit of a wait. Thin on good screw placement.

Top pitch in very featured condition and certainly not fat. Hard climbing and probably WI5. Much harder than Cold Couloir which was hard on the day.

Climbed top right pitch, was very thin and wet, was a technical battle to get up it with only using 3 screws for the entire pitch, would say easy 5+ today compared to the other routes in the area.

Andre Clarke 21/Jan AltLd rpt

Very wet when we did this. Tommy led crux and only got 3 item of gear in. Seemed way harder than last time I did and much more than 4+. Last time solid and hocked out; this time ice unconsolidated / chandellary and very techincal. Weird and running with water a temps were -10C! It was an experience.

Great route esp top pitch, which was hooked out but still awesome. Led the easy pitches 3 and 4

First proper ice climb, technique was rubbish but managed to pull through with stamina. Did the whole route from bottom, was lucky enough to get the big pillar to lead. Bitterly cold day, had an amazing time on it though

Great line. Climbed before doing the left variation due to many teams hanging about.

Avoid busy initial pitches (done before) and first on the big pitch. Impressive route but easier than expected

Led the last pitch. Great condition. Abandoned doing the left branch after as too many groups on it and has spent to much of the day waiting.

Busy (to be expected with a lazy start) but everyone had good technique so nothing much coming down. FInal pitch is quite aerated with lots of rattly "ear" pulling and not many options for screws.

A nice route with a great mountain atmosphere once in the upper amphitheatre. Nic led the first bulge on the steeper right hand side, belaying on screws at the foot of a couple of short, steepish pillars. I climbed the pillars, taking care not to knock them down - they were a bit thin. Thankfully it wasn't too steep. Nic led the next bulge, which was nice and fat and took us onto the uppers now basin. I did the following pitch, which was mostly waking with a couple of short easy steps. After that, some more walking and a trudge up a snow slope (crux) to the base of the final pitch. Nic did a good lead on funky and at times worrying ice, with a cold shower thrown in for good measure! The line we took was more of a 4 than a 4+ as the steeper (and drier!) section to the right was looking a bit thin. Abbed down the top pitch, then walked off.
