Slimey wet loose horrible big boot fun. Route fully stripped of snow

rentaghost 22/Apr AltLd

Fantastic, *** Follow the crampon scratches and route fairly obvious. Pitched 3 sections. 1st few moves on the 1st corner awkward. Avoid direct descent down boulder field to half way lochan - it's awful.

Pitched the 3 harder sections (James led) and soloed the rest. It rained for most of the walk-in so it was a bit slippery. We topped out at dusk and decided to descend the steep boulder field directly to the half way lochan. This turned out to be a mistake and took 2.5 hours in the dark, which wasn't enjoyable, especially with the wind strengthening to fierce, necessitating a fair bit of ditching to the ground to avoid being blown/tripping over the boulders. 10 hours car to car.

Decided on doing this when Tower Ridge looked too wet. Sadly this was also wet, and this led to slow going especially around the crux chimney pitch.
