Tim Ford 14/Jan/18 Lead rpt

Bex's first winter route, walk in was nice and we did it pretty quickly, started up the route which had a lot more snow on it than last year which was nice but made placing gear a lot tougher missed the first belay so had to climb back down to it. Next pitch was nice and pleasant then weather started to come in and the snow and wind picked up quickly, within minutes visibility was minimal but we pushed on, got to the arete which was extremely cool but very windy. Got to the belay and was belaying for about 40 minutes, withing that time i became a snowman on one side. Lead the last pitch but glasses fogged up so couldn't see much so ended up not getting any gear in. I got ice axes in the top stuck my head over and got blasted by the wind. belayed my partner up quickly and shoved ropes into bag, could not attempt the walk off as it was too windy so went down the gully. A lot of snow had fallen which was loose so halfway down a chunk of it started to move which was worrying luckily it did not take us with it and did not travel far. Then had the walk down. In the end a thoroughly exhausting day and one of the best ive had in a long while. Thanks to Bex for being a solid partner and enjoying all of it.

Took advice that usual approach was from directly below but about 100m below the route the thigh deep snow developed a nasty shear line 4 - 6 inches down so backed down and went for the butress to the left. Followed this on bomber snow ice until we could cross the bergshrund (3 - 5 meters deep) and get some rock gear in. Crossing Broad gully here on a belay was much easier in only shin deep new snow with no sloughs as we moved. Rest of route was very pleasant.

We got there the first ones with just two parties behind us and somehow we managed to finish the last ones, maybe to polite letting everyone pass? The snow was powdery but it was an amazing day out! The climbers around us were all very nice! The pinnacles were exposed and the move was tricky but really exciting! took us 9h

lead p 1 & 3 - lots of powder (~1ft) with a good crust making swimming all the more interesting. the fin was nicely hoared, gaining it involved some good mantling envolving axes as too slippy for gloves - was raining at 500m on sun 11th so hopefully consolidating the snow higher up!

On arriving at the narrow arête the party above us had got their rope jammed and the leader had untied(!) and soloed off. With several parties below us and dusk approaching we assisted the stranded second and then traversed left under the arête.

A tremendous climb, in good condition, the rocky arete is an absolute delight, If only it were twice as long!
