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.

A poor choice given the thaw and sunny weather, cruddy ice on the main ice fall.

Backed off half wayish as the icefall turned rather into rocky waterfall in the sun.

Five pitches, I led the odd ones. Slightly cruddy ice, but still enjoyable if a little discontinuous. Really nice top icefall.

Nice ice! One incident of ice flowing out of an axe placement for Robbie!

Had hoped to do the left hand edge of Window Gully but not quite in yet. Top Icefall good.

just the RH upper icefall, good conditions, LH icefall suffering badly in the sun

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.

Pitch 1 was a total horror show. Got to belay in ice cave and abbed off. Snow melting and ice cruddy. Way too warm.

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!

Climbed an odd, and easier variation of K9.

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?

First pitch thin and cruddy but otherwise in decent enough nick. Top icefall was very nice.

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.
