βeta: Lead the first 60m and the wee cornice top out. Mostly decent snow most of the way up, but gear placements were very sparse due to the coating of snow and icing of cracks. It felt very serious, not helped by the gale force winds which were seemingly coming from the ground. What an epic day!

βeta: Route is solid for placements, all ice and turf. Only problem was the belays, very little gear could be dug out and the top pitch into gully was a very steep swim
