Had the following email from James late this afternoon:
We (James and Andy) decided to head up to idwal stream today after yesterdays report of Ice on the route, got on the route at 7.30am conditions climable although not a lot of opportunity to place ice screws.
Another 3 teams on the route behind us, the whole route could do with a bit more of a freeze which should happen over the next few days.
1 team of 3 on the ramp again looked a bit thin but claimable, Bottom of South Gully looks claimable again second pitch looks very thin hope this helps anyone heading to the area.
