Description

Nothing new here - people have been climbing Hallett's rock routes in winter for a long time. I found that Great Dihedral to Standard Route makes for an excellent mixed climb. The climbing is never desperate but is sustained and of high quality.

Notes:

Snow slopes at the base of the route can be avy prone.

A potentially dangerous cornice forms above the exit on Standard Route, and some tunneling is required to gain the summit ridge.

This route is not conditions dependent and makes for a great mid-winter climb.

Location

This is the obvious dihedral on the First Buttress.

Protection

A set of cams to 3 inches, hexes to BD #11, stoppers, pins, and Spectres.

Before placing iron, consider that this is also a summer rock climb.
