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.

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.

Climbed in 4 pitches. J led up to the base of the ice pitch (which in itself was pretty solid ice most of the way). I led the ice pitch (memo to self - if guidebook mentions ice, and the route is wind scoured, in future, take more than one screw!) then we split the rest into 2 35-ish m pitches to finish.
