110m.

Rockfax Description
110m. Climb the icy groove left of the amphitheatre, if the ice allows it may be possible to leave the groove and climb up steeper more open ice on its left wall. The broad gully above is followed to the top. In poor snow conditions this gully can be quite avalanche prone. © Rockfax

Led the crux, then dropped my Petzl reverso at the belay.. if anyone finds it I'm happy to offer postage, beer tokens and buckets of appreciation!

devious wally 11/Mar AltLd O/S

Great fun. Made more interesting by the cascades of thawing rime ice coming down from the high crags, mostly just small stuff but did get hit by a lump about the size of a petzl reverso, Thank god for helmets.

Twice on a glorious day, second time as compensation for "discretioning" out of SE Gully at the crux. Quite easy condition and very solid. Pleasant.

C Witter 29/Feb 2nd O/S

Had a bit of an epic on this - definitely not to be underestimated. Pitching the route, we were too slow and finished in the dark, in snow and howling winds. A lot of loose powder snow around as snow fell during the climb; and there was a big cornice at the top of the Left Branch, which made topping out precarious. Then had to navigate down Great End to Seathwaite in the dark and a snow cloud, with no obvious landmarks until we reached Sty Tarn. Was a sheer act of perseverance. Finally got back to Lancaster after 2am... A beautiful and powerful day, but the overriding emotion from about 5pm onwards was one of dread... and it's not an experience I ever want to repeat.

Huge quantities of snow with avalanche debris at the bottom of south east and central gully. The snow was well consolidated - perfect for kicking steps. The pitch on left branch was climable (just) on collapsing snow. Quite exciting! Large cornice on right but avoidable on the left (steep loose snow). Snow on the summit turned to rain and a mega thaw so we got a massive soaking on the way down.
