did direct start, then traversed right out of the snow gully about 30m below the direct finish and went up a steepish icy corner above a wee gully with a jammed rope - not sure if that's the normal way. long route!

Done the direct IV start.......great first pitch lead by Steve! I lead the easier 2nd pitch around III. The third pitch took us back onto the normal route. Route finding at the top was a problem in the mist. Long route! Around 350m not 275m as stated in the guide.
