βeta: Got battered at bottom of first pitch with large blocks of ice. Got hit on the head with football size piece. But made up for it with excellent last 3 pitches of ice topping out with the plateau to ourselves

βeta: Brilliant day with an early start, ice was great. Matt dropped an ice screw from the final pitch, had to admire his calmness in order to not let it ruin a great day. I have now doubt it would have cut him deep, hats off.

βeta: First belay obvious, the rest no. Lobbed a 13cm BD screw from P5 so if anyone finds that a reward is available!
