Tricky start leads to fun moves through the roof. Terry pulled a jug off seconding through the roof, I hadn't discovered it on the way up anyway. Grades a bit speculative, I can't remember...

Most of the bolts have been removed (good stuff Guillaume), making this a great single pitch trad line. There is pro near the bolt in the upper quarter, if you have brass offsets...

Nice bridging in the chimney until halfway. Exit before the roof and move right then up, whereupon it starts to feel like some old Arapiles classic.

AI4- Natural Selection, Mt Darwin's Toe

Classic. If only for the controversy it raised when locals kicked up a stink about what aspect of Darwin it really was on in our reporting. South Face? West Ridge? South Shoulder? Let's call it Darwin's Toe. Nice ice climbing. 44 hour round trip up the glacier, up the plod, up the ice, down and out.

Flat crux hold required some gnarly effort to stay with it. Cut loose, toes barely off the ground. Skim skim skim. Send!

Can do it clean in two halves. The crux hold in the middle is a difficult flat jug. Super sketchy to hook.

OK, talking about the one tucked between two boulders (can't remember what map on which number), you jump to the starting slopers, smear up and then big moves between big holds. Pretty awesome!

M3 Number One Gully

After a massive snow dump probably M3- in these conditions. I forgot to bring the rack so I led the entire thing with 2 microcams, a snowstake and a knifeblade piton (including for anchor pieces)... needless to say, knotted slings make bomber anchors.
