240m. A broad gully at the North end of the crag. The short ice steps that provide the interest are interspersed with easier terrain. Good rock belays.

Not much snow about but plenty of usable ice all the way up, the grade 4 right branch is not touching down but can be turned on the right. The left branch ice pitch is 25m and currently grade 4.

First Grade III lead, very enjoyable with fairly good weather, started a bit late so walked off in the dark. Bit soft in places but good ice found higher up.

Lots of snow making it hard work, the ice was good when you found it and the gear took some finding.

Fat blue ice on the steep bits, powder over ice on the easy bits. Crux pitch fantastic, quite sustained with an ice umbrella at the top - awesome!

im pretty sure i did north gully as im pretty sure i did central the other day, but there seams to be some confusion as to which gully is which

Spudt 12/Dec/12 Lead O/S

Just enough ice, good belays but no good screw runners, 3 pitches middle one on snow, nice route, very easy for a grade 3.

Good climb in awesome condition, nice ice pitches throughout with consolidated snow gullies in-between. At the top took the right branch then cut back left for the final ice pitch.

Enjoyed this one. Took the right hand option, the steep & spicy step, then went back left to take in the fun ice fall at the top of the left branch.
