Got a rope out but didn't place any gear as there was an icy section in the gully above the direct start. Moved together the rest of the way up.

Ish. Very lean where the route bends left, and we went wrong, crossing two mixed areas and finishing above Spiral Gully. A misjudgement, and an alarming solo as our second ever winter climb. Lesson learnt: route may not be in the conditions that give it its grade.
