I'll qualify the title of 'the busiest ice route...' by saying we had waited as l 2 parties led in front of us and 4 parties were sharing the stance as john led the pitch4 , in all we waited about 2 hours but its still a great route .

Hi Nadir, great picture. We did the 2 continuation pitches, so didn't see you to say goodbye.

Thanks Jon , we saw you just as i was coming up the little gully above the pool which was a great pitch. All the best

Wow, a winter climbing pic in the top ten that i actually think is a good shot! Nice to see a shot that has an interesting composition, features great ice formations and a decent body position. There have been some truly poor photos in this top ten thing recently, but this is really nice.
