Phosphorescent Grooves* III 4
175m, 5 pitches. Traverses the left wall overlooking no 5 gully, starts just left of the gully moving up easy ground to belay under a wall, then traversing right up the gully along a ledge, up a slabby corner to belay, before an airy step into a 5m chimney, carrying on right, over another chimney and up to the top of Moonlight Gully Buttress.

Hidden - 2011

started up right hand chimney but traversed into this after the first pitch. might have cut in too high for the ledge traverse - it was pretty tedious to protect. Slabby corner was covered in a thin layer of snow and at first looked totally blank, but a lot of scraping uncovered some decent pick hooks in the rock underneath, but no gear, so felt a bit tenuous. The awkward chimney wasn't too awkward, but quite exposed and strenuous, and the in situ peg halfway up looks a bit suspect.
