Spent 10 minutes contemplating life in the middle of the slab, then got my shit together and took it to the top.

Solo, very scary alone. Felt very like TPS. Brilliant.

A Pad arrived late on, but I was already at the top before it was in position.

enjoyed this, then paid the price for attempting heroic spotting as noaks came off right at the top. Ouch and still ouch!!

Brilliant. Had spent a long time playing in the snow on the walk into here. Snow was up to half way up thigh in places! Climbed down the snow drift next to the File, only to find I had lost my wallet and phone! Wallet was sat on the crust of the snow so was happy to find that. Tom went back to get his phone to try and ring mine, just as he was coming back, I saw it pushed into the snow! Very lucky to see it! Must have stood on it. This slab is brilliant! First time wearing my new Anazazis and a good test for them, conditions were very cold and friction quality. Feels very big when your nearing the top! A solid 5a move near the top, probably HVS if you were in that situation on a route! Had a good day looking for dry things!
