Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing H ??, 2010 AltLd O/S Not quite sure about the year, I'm getting old/forgetful regarding dates. What I do remember is that I was armed with a set of leash less axes and mono point crampons, Dai had a set of old Flys with blunt picks and twin-point walking crampons - what a legend..

geoff b 7 Feb, 2009 AltLd dnf Went to do Jubilee Climb but there was a team in situ so we headed for this. Did P1 to find a number of fellow locals in situ on the belay & P2 not in condition: we all retreated. Chris did it a year or two later I think.

Neil McA H 26 Feb, 1986 Lead Epic day, incredibly cold and windy. We traveled 2 up on a 125cc motorbike which was cold and extremely exciting on the 25 degree icy approach road. We nearly gave up on the bike ride and again on the walk in when being knocked over by the wind. The ice pitches were brittle but steady despite only having a couple of old Russian ice screws, but the mixed was hard, used a couple of points of aid on a bulge on pitch 3 (as was the norm i think in those days??). Steve's previous winter experience was a couple of grade 3's.
