Good climb, very banked out, went left at the top to avoid overhanging cornice. Still had a very shaky top out to the left with a powdery cornice but not too bad, should have dug it out but was running out of time.

Limited viability meant we ended up in this gully by mistake. Soloed up to within 3m of the plateau before being defeated by the overhanging cornice. Downclimbed back to the CIC.

We did this on a very hot April day! We thought we would be swimming up the gully but condition were pretty good! A little soft at lower levels but as we got closer to the top conditions were good and even a little icy at the top!We decended via the tourist path(never again)!
