220m. A long, easy angled uniform snow slope steepening slightly at the top.

As a quicker escape out of Avon Basin after bottling the climbing on Hell's Lum and going for a walk - nice day out. Very calm in the basin compared to the plateau!

First winter lead. Rather late start. Stiff westerly harried us up the Fiacaill a Choire Cas and across the plateau. Lovely descent of Coire Raibert with stunning views of wintry Beinn Meadhoin and frozen Loch Avon. Carn Etchachan, Shelter Stone Crag and Hell's Lum looking mighty impressive. Windy in the basin in spite of partial theoretical shelter. Geared up behind a boulder, where Nathan dropped a glove (and would've had a yard sale had I not tidied up his other possessions quicktime.) We staged a rescue on belay, as it was right down on the vague loch shore. Nathan led the trudge up to the first belay. Just one piece of gear per belay and no runners: not enough time, and on straightforward ground. Horribly deep powder lower down but some good neve, plastic ice and turf higher up. 5 pitches. Used both grey nuts, tomahawk, 3 slings. Third one slipped off with Nathan halfway up! Topped out 30 mins after sunset and had to effect nav to 1141 in almost zero vis and big wind. Checked position and bearing 3 times with GPS. Nice easy descent from there.

Buried in powder at the bottom but some decent neve, ice and even a bit of turf on the left for the higher two thirds. Topped out half an hour after sunset: interesting!

Hot, sunny, conditions very good. To reach the climb we cut across the higher ground below the cliffs. This was probably a mistake as the ground is fairly broken there. Next time I will drop down to the bottom and come back up the scree slope below the route.
