/ Ledge Route/ No. 2 Gully/ No. 4 Gully Conditions?
Took my daughter up nr 4 on Sunday - her first winter outing. In easy but good condition - very stepped and not at all steep at the topping out bit. Belays on snow though.
We had it to ourselves - remarkably.
Went up No2 on Saturday, soft snow at the entrance to the gully, lovely firm icey snow all the way to the top from about halfway, no problems with cornices at the top, veered slightly right. Having said that my mate happily accepted my offer of dropping a rope down to safeguard the exit!
