No ice on slab section on 1st pitch so went up scabbard a couple of metres to good hooks to move out right to traverse across to awkward step down. 2nd pitch steep and  bold not alot of gear until good thread in rh crack. Top pitch a fight through deep powder.

2 pitches (P2). Direct into groove rather than traverse from Scabbard. First pitch was good, with ace moves round the bulge on thin ice. Second pitch wasn't great and a wee bit insecure at points. Probably would have been better with more of a build up of ice in the grooves. Turf where exposed and actually required good today, vegetated bays are insulated and not quite there - care required.

Done in 2 big pitches, I lead 1st and Craig finished. 1st pitch was good with interest and some really nice moves

Poor conditions, got better with height. Maybe went off route a bit? Did not find the awkward down step guidebook described.

One of those days that started badly and ended well. Interestingly thin section

Half of first pitch buried. Drew led the first pitch, 'bold' climbing but ice and neve were just good enough in places. 2nd pitch was tricky and ice only just fat enough to take a short screw. Next part was just a steep snow plod. Abseil 'stake' was completely buried so abbed of some in situ gear left by some guys who'd just done scabbard chimney.

Wild weather. Working with Alex. More an ice route at the moment with little protection.

first proper mixed route, and winter leading. lack of visibility reduced exposure.

Did after Scabbard Chimney (P3). Adam lead P1, P3, I lead P2 and after P3 (moving together) to the top. This route required taxing moves and is a descent route. Poorly protected, though. Harder and more serious than Scabbard Chimney.

Adam Booth 02/Feb/13 AltLd O/S

Harder and bolder than scabbard chimney so I think grade V is entirely justified (used to get IV). There was one quite hard pull round a roof on super thin ice, that I was basically soloing. Would recommend this one if you're looking for your first grade IV! Good combo with Scabbard chimney. 50m ropes got us back to broad gully from the rap point.

Quite a lot of snow on approach and on the ledges, but the racks were clear, and the climbing good, particularly the second (crux) pitch.
