60m, 2 pitches. The turfy buttress immediately to the left of Blunt Gully. A good route when everything else is buried under powder! The initial overhanging wall was avoided on the right, could also be avoided on the left. Could be taken direct at an increased grade.

Led first pitch which was tricky, requiring a huge amount of snow clearing from the ledges. Only gear was a directional nut held in by a dodgy bulldog. Belayed at the large halfway ledge after a nice steep turfy step on 3 pieces of bomber turf gear. Second pitch was straightforward with good frozen turf. Overall, an obvious line finishing on Sharp Edge and climable when probably nothing else on Foule Crag was.
