Ice not great which made bulge on first pitch awkward. Ab down to Douglas gap on single 50m

Intended on doing Vanishing Gully - but there was a queue. So opted for this which was quite good and no push over - especially given the foul weather!

Did first 3 pitches, then abbed off.

Actually started up second icefall to the right of West Gully. Steep, but short. Having only two screws, now both used, had to skirt rigth of the iced bulges, returning left to the tat on the belay. Headed into mixed ground on P3, but snow too soft, so backed into gully on the right, and climbed with ease to crest.

Low level option with much fresh snow on the approach. Mostly unconsolidated with unfrozen turf and cruddy ice. A lot harder than expected.

I led P1 (bold, unconsolidated and unfrozen. Not the best choice!). Ed led P2, Tim led P3 then abbed into Douglas Gap and back to CIC

Little gear on the route most it was buried. Summit ridge was a snow arÍte so no gear on final belay.

A nice route for a quick nip up! Seemed a little spicier than the guide book grade. Good alternative finish up through a nose is interesting. A slight traverse back along to the start of tower ridge and an abseil into the gully was ideal descent.

Fine, if slightly unconsolidated.
Did a left hand variation of the top pitch, following a corner, with no turf and unconsolidated snow, it probably went at upper end 4, possibly 5. Otherwise, the top two pitches are grade 1.5 snow slopes!
