180m. This route lies between North and Central Gullies and links a lower and upper icefall. Start mid-way between the two gullies but at a higher level and climb a wide icefall to where it narrows 6m below an overhanging wall. Traverse left across mixed ground to easier terrain which is climbed up and left to the fine upper icefall which forms in a corner. Climb this to the top.

guitarshane 13 Jan, 2018 Lead rpt Bottom icicle looking rather thin at the moment. We up started Window Gully then took the top icefall of K-9. Pretty steep at the moment, ice a bit cruddy in places but overall not too bad. Exciting lead. Out of the wind for most of the climbing, very windy approach and walk out.

Irelando 16 Feb, 2014 2nd O/S Perfect conditions weather wise- powder was a bit deep in places- chose the path of most resistance at the top in order to get some ice!

Lamb 16 Feb, 2014 AltLd O/S Busy route today. Couldn't fit through 'window' so had to crawl through tunnel behind first ice fall and pull over on its left hand side - awkward! Didn't do upper icefall - seems well off natural line?

MadProfessor 11 Jan, 2014 AltLd Was in pokey condition, and we felt the two ice pitches (Pitches 3 and 5) were grade 5. The top icefall, pitch 5, was worth doing although a bit contrived as it is well off the natural line of the route and is reached over easy ground.
