Andrew Sloan 31 Jan Lead dnf I led up to the start of the 2nd ice fall in 3 pitches but abseiled off due to impending darkness. Started too late and not enough screws. A shame we didn't top out as we had done all the hard climbing. A beautiful clear still day.

Misha 21 Feb, 2010 AltLd O/S Really fat but very brittle ice on P1. Did in three pitches plus moving together on the easy finishing snow slopes. Started a bit late, so in an attempt to save time tried to go round the final ice fall on P3 but what looked like an easy mixed groove proved to be quite tricky with very little gear (good IV) - ended up having to simul climb for about 20 - 30 metres, fortunately I got to a sling belay just as Paul got to the start of the difficulties in the groove! Rejoined the usual finish on the easy finishing slopes. Led P1 and P3. Superb!
