Not much in condition so went up this, easy until final rope length when gully blocked by big overhang. Traversed up and left on steep turf to top out near top of Diagonal

Ice was lean on Diagonal Gully so climbed this instead. Felt relatively straight forward and not bad for a grade II. Maybe it was more banked out than usual.

ice on Diagonal was poor so went up this, stripped out a lot and ended up on a precarious ledge in the middle of the final headwall, abbed off and descended the rest of the gully
