Had trouble locating gully in the murk and ended up at summit of Great End via scrambling route. Found Cust's from the top and down climbed it, before ascending back to top. A couple of tricky mixed bits getting over chockstones, but otherwise good neve.

would make easy winter climb when gulley full of consolidated snow. at time I did it it was a running river of hail stones. Note: if not full of snow there a 2 difficult steps, 1 half way and 1 at the very top. a good sheltered climb in west winds
