30m. The gully that splits the left hand side of the crag. Grade is the same whether snow covered or not, as long as the turf is frozen.

Ticklists: Peak Winter, Scrambles in the Dark Peak (winter).

Snowier than it looked from below, about 70% covered, albeit only with a spattering, with turf well frozen.

Very soft turf not at all frozen till on the top. Very loose powdery snow. Went up after mam tor gully expecting it to be more frozen as in the shade but no such luck.

Done a few times before but this time bottled it in the scoop. Had a nervous retreat. Need to climb outside more! Still had beer and cakes that night.

No snow, but superb frozen turf. Worth no less than 2 stars in condition like this, even the Apprentice didn't moan too much about climbing it. I'd not object to doing it again.

Turf well frozen, but less snow than I had hoped for. Didn't use my crampons or one of my axes. Did the right hand finish up the steep corner.

No ice, solid turf. Soloed twice, first time exited left of the direct finish, second time exited right of the direct finish up the short corner

Might actually be a nice climb with a bit of snow in! Finished direct, hat fell out of jacket, had to climb back in to get it, grrrr!

Better than Mam Tor's main gully as both a summer and winter route. Fun.

Starting to thaw as we climbed with snow falling off onto us. The turf was pretty solid but the odd patch near the top was starting to go mushy. Fun for my first mixed route tho.

A fun jaunt in between snow showers. Turf frozen apart from one small patch and a layer of fresh soft snow over the top.

Turf mostly frozen, some old hard snow, and lots of fresh powder to make it look wintery. Closer to III in these conditions but only for about 5m. Much nicer than Mam Tor, but short and without the history!

Superior to the stuff on Mam Tor, and in the shade reckon it would be properly nice if it ever accumulated some solid snow/ice
