DescriptionNothing 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.
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.
