The gully between B and C Buttresses is well-defined only between the Middle Ledge and the Rake, where several short ice steps provide interest. Where it tops out at the Rake, there are three possible finishes:
1. Left-hand finish, consistent with grade;
2. Central icefall direct finish, III;
3. Right-hand finish, consistent with grade.

From the Rake, many continuations are possible on the Upper Tier.

followed henry up and went up to the divergence and took a grade IV ice fall pitch slighlty to the right and then grade IV chimney pitch before returning to Gully No. 3 to top out.

Lots of loose powder. Made it to the Rake, then decided to back down (at 4pm). Made it to the Clachaig for last orders!

Fairly unconsolidated snow, but good ice on middle tier. Extended most pitches by moving together up easier ground.

Nipped up and down the middle tier to keep warm.

Avoided the main ice pitch beneath Middle Ledge as it was cruddy. Top half heavily banked out for April.

Complete from just beneath the middle tier; excellent snow-ice. Two significant steepenings. A quality route, but outshone I feel by the Smear. Right-hand finish.
