First team to leave north face car park at 3am. Made fresh tracks in deep powder snow all the way to CIC hut and then to Douglas Gap. Wanted to do Tower Ridge however backed of after first pitch due to volume of snow and fatigue.

Retro Rowan 21/Feb/15 Solo

cut steps from north face car park up to Douglas gap, only for us to back down due to low speed.

Swam up this on the approach to Tower Ridge due to the huge dump of snow on the previous night.

Up this and down the eastside, as the winds picked up and the day became too dangerous to continue climbing. Walked up into the Basin on the 10th aswell and noticed lots of melt - and still lots of wind! Turned back.

Lots of loose snow and an awkward cornice at the top, in descent as well due to the fact East side was full of windslab.

Lots of snow. Climbed moving together. Planned to decend East Gully, but this looked loaded so abbed back down West Gully.

Batt 01/Jan/13 2nd

Quite a but of loose snow about so in an effort to do something! Good snow at bottom turned soft at top. Hoping to descend East gully but too much snow so ab'd back down top of west then soloed out.

First outdoor climb; good walk to CIC hut; hair-raising moments in lead up to gully; wee avalanche at base of gully as harnessed; George leading, me second, Nick at the rear; 2/3 way up hit steep climb that required axe work; great final third - just powder snow. Descent down East gully - at first backwards, then on arse, then round the boulder to the hut and down to North Face car park in the shittest hire b2 boots from Tiso. Weather good, but closed in at Pass, cleared by bottom.

As part of an aborted attempt on Tower Ridge. Note to self- never come up this way again. Horrific in summer, everything crumbly or slimy and no protection. Just don't do it

Mixed route climbed in winter, with knee deep snow in places.

Couldn't resist this at the end of the day as the sun caught the gully. Done as part of a great mountaineering day. Felt ridiculously alpine in the scorching sun.
