We've visited the crag in many different conditions this season, I'm surprised that it hasn't been destroyed totally by the recent thaw! Although it always seem to be a popular, busy venue; sometimes the conditions aren't exactly perfect. There were a few full depth ice slides off the rockface a few weeks ago and the ice on the routes can be pretty hollow with water behind or alternatively buried under a foot of snow... However I think interesting conditions like this just make the climbing more adventurous and memorable; a bit like climbing in Scotland!
