Description:

Mostly steep ice sections. Possible to move together on most of it if confident! Early start not essential as seemed to remain in suitable condition untill about 11am. Good protection mostly on rock sections & insitu tat to belay from. Mixed sections reasonably easy. Easiest decent is to traverse across to Chere couloir & abseil down there. can decend in about 4 x 50 meter abseils off bomber bolts. worth a go!

easy to escape to the right if necessary, not talking from experience!
