/ Found: slings and krabs in Number 2 Gully

Found slings and screwgates around adjacent ice pillars after the first ice and before the longer pitch in Number 2 Gully on my way up today. I was very intrigued as to how they might have got there, given the route being in such good nick: if you came for grade II ice over the last couple of days, here it was in spades! So I suspect there must be a story to tell! If you put me out of my misery, I'll be happy to return the gear.

Probably a second who hadn't done much climbing before didn't realise you were supposed to remove them and bring them up.

Hahaha! Can just imagine the look on the leader's face! I take it you are speaking from hard experience, Andy?

Certainly am. Particularly from those who haven't done other than sport climbing before.
