geoff.comley 27 Feb, 2013 Lead O/S Really nice and interesting ice pitch. Make it as hard or easy as you want if the ice umbrellas make it so. They were fat when we did it and great fun. Although getting stepped out now. Walked to the summit to top off a great day :)

GaryK 19 Feb, 2012 AltLd O/S Soloed to main pitch, rock belay on left. The main pitch was harder than it looked from below as it was only solid ice in places, with quite a lot of hollow ice and crystalline snow. A sustained pitch to another good rock belay 55m. Then a choice of exits to the plateau. We took a set of wires, (1-9), Rockcentrics, (3-7), and 6 short to medium ice screws. An excellent route.

Tim Sparrow ?Feb, 1992 Lead Went for the long pitch - bypassed the first peg belay, just clipped it. While climbing the steep final step of the pitch, kicking blind, noted a strange feeling. Looking down, noted one crampon point sticking through the rope - the one attached to the peg 20ft below. Oh dearie me. Best to switch off and climb! (In the days of flat chisel front points - it cut most of the rope fibres)
