Yourlead 19 Nov, 2017 2nd Climbed in very lean conditions, with some good ice in the initial gully, but no icicle giving quite a bold hard mixed climb. Backed off lead on 2nd pitch, but good bomber turf throughout. the crux moves were short, but felt like a tech V 5 on the day, otherwise the rest of the climb overall a IV 4. Discuss.....

jazzyjackson 6 Feb, 2006 Lead dnf Route not complete. Ice not banked out over the most important section. Thus we attempted variation out left onto rotten snow traverse and almost had a messy fall. retreated eventually after some nice Elvis leg shaking and cursing!

Sam_in_Leeds 3 Jan, 2006 AltLd O/S Awesome route, first one of holiday. Soled bottom pitch, then lead crux ice pitch, bricking it. Stu attempted to lead the final snow pitch, but fell approx 40metres from cornice. Finshed on a TR courtesy of Tucker and Paddy of Cardiff Uni. Awesome sunset to top it off but a 3 hour walk off!

Martin Bennett 9 Mar, 1975 - Huge lob when Sammy Crymble, trying to get a rope to me under the impossibly soft cornice, knocked it down on me. Went 200 feet, slamming into Bob as I passed (and cutting partway through the 1" tape sling on the dead man!). All Ok however, and now the cornice was gone we climbed it!
