You cruised it, I was at the bottom wondering why you had your rucksack on ! Central Icefall next :)

Thanks. Did take a while though as kept shaking out to avoid building up the pump. We all thought the crux was the short steep bit between the first and second ledges on the first pitch, which was actually vertical for a few moves (so felt overhanging!), whereas the rest is a bit less than vertical. The psychological crux though was the steep bit on the second pitch, which I took on the right - less than vertical but the pro was a tied off 13cm screw with only about half the screw in the ice! I didn't hang around looking for better gear there, not sure there was any anyway. Yes, would love to do Central next time it's in. Would have had a go this weekend but didn't have the partners. As for the rucksack, it just had another duvet (I'm skinny so feel the cold!) and some water.

The three screws in close proximity at the bottom are because I thought it sensible to back up the first one (which was ok) but the second one was dodgy as the ice dinner plated around it (but didn't actually come off), so I put another one it (which was ok).
