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.
Ross L - Solo O/S - 10/Mar/13 with Robert F

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
