Rockfax Description
The parallel line to Laddie's Gully is another great outing with wonderful climbing
1) 2, 60m. Follow the stepped gully past some interesting pulls to a belay where it steepens
2) 3, 25m. The steep section gives a great ice-pitch with a stiff pull to finish
3) 1, 110m. Continue up the gully and snow slope to gain the ridge, well right of the summit. © Rockfax

Powdery snow and not much ice on the crux. Turf was bomber though all the way.

JamesWilliams 06/Feb AltLd O/S

Bit powdery and fairly thin on the crux easy to the top.

Snow and ice conditions weren't perfect making the transition to easy ground after the crux groove a bit more exciting than I would have preferred. A nice line.

pretty lean ice, made for interesting mixed climbing. Lovely route.

not done this since 1988,so a long awaited return. A nice ice pitch, which is very narrow forms the crux,then fairly straightforward to the summit ridge. worth the two stars

Jedi Soloed. Turfy, Nice little ridge to finish.

We soloed up to the steep corner, which I lead, Diccon then finished off by breaking out of the gully to the left across the face to avoid the unbroken cornice. Conditions lean ice with 2cm of fresh snow on top.

Well defined crux in the middle but solid ice so very enjoyable. Would probably be a bit desperate if dryer.
