<< Eastern Gully
Pyramid Gully >>
|200m, 5 pitches. P1 and P2 shared with Eastern Gully - after the ice section, move up the snow gully until level with an ice line on the right, which may be in two sections separated by easy snow. P3 takes this ice line and then follows the easier angled continuation gully, belay where the gully takes a sharp left turn. P4 and P5 follow the gully and then the path of least resistance once the gully runs out (possible ice according to the guide book, otherwise neve and turf). A choice of routes over easy ground leads to the summit.|
This climb is in 7 logbooks, and on no wishlists.
I have no idea whether we climbed this. Whatever we climbed, it was definitely hard for III.

Was in decent winter nick - often good turf, neve and ice (even got some screws in), though also some unconsolidated snow and poor turf. No ice after the ice line on P3. Led P1, 3 and 5.
