masa-alpin u 21 Feb, 2013 AltLd O/S Skied in and out from the ski resort carpark. I lead P1 (40m),2(20m),3(55m), Ed P4 to top out. It turned out taking 9 screws was far too optimistic - placed just one psychological screw in the entire route... Ice was pretty thin, yet abundant enough to fill or hide rock cracks. P1 was practically solo, despite of hours of effort of searching for gear.

telemarker 22 Feb, 2011 2nd O/S First time up a grade 5, managed it all without problems. Some really interesting sections. Was dripping all day long on us. Good lead by Freudenthal.

Captain Solo 10 Feb, 2011 AltLd I thought Salamander was good but this was even better. Made even sweeter by the fact that its not always in good condition. Quite a sustained pitch out of The Haven.
