Speculative and delusional look at inaccessible, which was 'inaccessible' so plodded up this which was in cruddy and marginally dangerous nick in parts.

Down climbed the top two thirds then abbed the last steep section. Lots of ice and lots of powder snow. Turf faily well frozen. Would be good to climb up it. Probably grade II.

Down solo after Inacessible Gully. Really nice route - lots of ice in a very fine position, recommended (II).

First climb with ice axes. Dan led all but easy top pitch. Really enjoyable, but very cold hanging around on belays. Dark as we walked back down the valley.

Climbed to narrowing / chimney part. Ice / snow at this point was mush abandoned climb as it was not really in condition.
