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.

Led P2 (ice) and P5 (broad ground to top). Great exploratory feel, some moving together, pitched the ice pitches.... stunning weather, roasting in the gully! Race against time.

Fair conditions, some patches of crud ice lower down, but all the ice-steps were in good enough nick. Took the right hand fork at the top for a tasty ice fall, The crux pitch was a belter!!!

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.

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!
