Several decent ice pitches. Deviated off half way to try Ravens gully, which spat us off,so finished route to the summit. Solid grade III+ at the momentAndrew Sloan - AltLd O/S - 06/Apr/13 with Steve Grove

first pitch thin, melty and steeper than the optional III pitch near the top

felt quite serious low down scrambling on verglassed rock without crampons on

Not the most enjoyable route I've ever done. Bottom of route not in great condition. Ended up on some verglassed rock, which felt quite serious. Good neve high up though.

At least III with long sections of steep and thin ice that day. Good ice pitch on the left near the top merited getting the rope out. A real calf burner.

perfect ice for all 300m. maybe when the gully is banked out with snow this will be II/III but with the near vertical ice pitches and long run outs, deffinatly worth a IV ! great conditions though, but started too late. Topped out in the dark and in a blizzard. overall, on the mountain for 12 hours! good day though, even if it did turn into an epic.

didnt know what it was when we set off, and was shocked by the grade, long sections of ice, some vertical sections.

Long very focused solo. Lots of ice, agreed it was probably III 4. No scope for falling off.

Horrible conditions, started too late all in all not a great first climb, almost no protection and soloed most of the route air to time, bad ice and no light don't mix well with novices!

Ridiculuos! This was meant to be an easy outing at grade I/II... we soloed off up the fun early ice steps with all well until dusty unconsolidated snow forced us onto Grade IV water ice (considerably easier and safer than the dusty stuff on the main line).A mammoth epic ensued providing the hardest winter climbing I've ever done. In the right conditions this gully will be easy, but these were not the right conditions = lost count of the number of severe crumbling ice pitches of wet moss flying left and right, poor belays and scary run outs.Very happy to top out.

Lots of snow on the mountain, very strong winds and poor visability. Felt great battling the conditions and needed excellent navigation by Jim.
