Lead P2. Slightly improvised as didn't read the guide book and ended up performing the spiciest moves of my life. :D (ie. seem to have done what a lot of others: straight up)

Good conditions on main pitch but ice on short exit pitch (straight up) was hollow, holed and fragile, was worried a lot of it would fall down.

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 :)

The last climb of the winter season, a month earlier than last year!

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.

A great route with more rock gear than I thought there would be. Great mushrooms to circumnavigate too. Went on to do Diadem afterwards. Wonderful day.

Mushy snow on the approach but good conditions on the main pitch. Felt about as hard as Black Crag Icefall.

Probably the best, and certainly the most sustained ice route I've done. The initial 45m had very little in the way of steps or hooks, so the route had quite an adventurous feel. Went straight up, via some tricky ice steps to gain the plateau. Awesome route!

John Roe 11/Mar/10 AltLd

Led crux, excellent ice, poor vis on the crag and had to nav off the top

plenty of ice gave fantastic conditions, well worth waiting for. main pitch was sustained and exposed, but plenty of bomber screws and good ice.

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)
