Goat Track Gully* II
[Wanderer100 (Carl) following on Goat Track Gully., 2 kb]120m, 3 pitches. Starting at the same point as Red Gully, the gully on the extreme right of the buttress has a short sharp but well protected section. it cuts up deeply rightwards to a short pitch which is usually taken on the right, initially on ice. Continue up a shallow gully for 25m from where it is easy to the top, or for those who don't want to go to plateau, a 40m traverse to the Goat track.

Alternative start on the right, meeting route half way up. Lead first pitch up some nice ice and turf up to a nice snow gully. Colin led 2nd pitch up some more ice and then some mixed less steep ground. I led final pitch through easy scrambling, but went left through the rock for interest instead of using the easy snow field. Probs slightly tougher than II
TAG_UTLEY - AltLd O/S - 21/Feb/15 with Colin

Busy day, a few teams in the gully and more in red gully. Pete led the first pitch, which included a long run out section. I led the second, enjoyed the ice pitch on the right, well protected but felt quite technical.

First winter lead..good fun and good option as a first lead...other than being in an avalanche chute !! As I've go no feel for the grades yet , im glad this wasn't considered at the easy end of it's grade BUT i think the amount of (hard) snow cover must've made this a bit easier.

Chose right hand start, nice thick grade II ice but hollow in places. Next section featured a steep slightly awkward mixed step (definitely grade III) that needs much more build up to be grade II. However, ice and frozen turf when required all the way up made for excellent climbing. Finished up the easier right hand snow slope.

Did the right hand start, which had a steep and tricky rock bulge to negotiate, then the steeper left hand finish, which looked more interesting than the snow slopes on the right. Not sure how much of the guidebook line we actually followed, but a very good and varied climb. Felt quite sustained for a Grade II with one or two quite hard moves and not an awful lot of gear.
CathS - AltLd O/S - 29/Jan/11 with Norbert

Took this route after waiting an age for climbers on broken gully and ended up racing the daylight ! Despite that, really enjoyed it; quite stiff for a II under the conditions, ice quite thin and brittle in places and a thin layer of unconsolidated snow.

Felt tough for grade II due to the lack of gear and steepness of the ice in places (but i may just be going soft). led pitches 1 and 2, placing the only runner of the climb on the 2nd (dubious ice screw), carl led final pitch. was really fun and my first winter route of the season. lots of snow!
