    We climbed a couple routes up there yesterday morning. Jeff Slide and Blind Fate. Both routes were fat enough to take stubbies and 13cm screws. Jeff Slide was definitely "In", Blind Fate had a couple spicy thin spots. The ice was good Sunday (very surprising!) and Monday. not sure how it will hold up now though with the warmer temps....don't hold your breath!

    We climbed grand illusion on Sunday(20/12/2015). It was too thin to climb the ice from the bolted belay, so we dry tool the crack in the corner and did a traverse once the ice was a bit better( 10cm). The second half of the fisrt pitch( low angle section), took some good 13 cm and we even put a 16 cm!!! last pitch was thin but with good rock gear on the side. We need some cold....
