Wilderness gully west** II 3
[Avoidable top 'pitch', 2 kb]40m, 2 pitches. The right hand of the two gullys. Icy scrambling most of the way with two pitches near the top. One nice grade two slab pitch, and a second steeper ice pillar. Grade 3 but short and escapable.
? Solo'd by Rob Middleton in December 2010 but almost certianly done before?

* This newly updated climb is waiting to be checked by the crag moderator.

Bit of ice, but not as fun as Wilderness Gully West

Mostly soloed, but one short pitch worth putting the rope on for at the top. Up a bit of steepish ice and through a hole!

In the dark, better ice than the East gully, but less well defined and mostly not as steep. Interesting steep icefall (3ish) at the end, a tricky-looking rock step to escape from the top of this didn't appeal so went on an underground expedition instead.

suprisingly good ice today, backed off top bit as too fragile.

Very nice route, ice was pristine. Many short steps, good fun. The top icicle ( 3mtr III ) is good to finnish on, either mantelshelf over the top rock directly or traverse left. Also climbed up the chimney and into the small cave on the left of the icicle
