140m.

Rockfax Description
140m. Initially poorly defined although usually spotted by a little icy corner approx 100m up the hill from Central Gully. Climb icy steps with good stances until the well defined upper gully is entered. Either climb this direct or exit via the steep little pitch on the right wall. A very reliable early season route. © Rockfax

Karlos 10 Feb - No ice on initial two steepenings, so climbed on LHS until below gully proper. Then, enough ice on right runnel to climb and gain access to narrowings. Final ice pitch much shrunken, so very delicate kicks needed to leave something for second (but not third!). Only one difficult move but felt very steep and committing. Easy snow slope above. Was pleased to have made a go of the route as it didn't look that great from below.

Good job as it turned out as she only had walking crampons and had clearly not done anything before and the gully was in fine condition with a long section of about WI 2/3 on the first pitch. Dorine did P2 starting with the usual icy wall, which was a bit broken today. I lead the straight continuation with a short ice pitch with interesting umbrella.

liamlonsdale 9 Feb, 2010 2nd O/S The lower section leading to "upper ice fall finish". Good quality route HOWEVER a team climbing above on the "Wall & Groove Finish" were hacking it to pieces and were sending down LARGE BLOCKS OF ICE (without warning), a couple of which hit me resulting in a cut face and a bruised arm. Definitely worth getting on but keep an eye on the routes above.

redsulike 30 Jan, 2010 AltLd β Grabbed a glorious weekend in the lakes, high pressure system, beautiful, cold, bright sunshine, perfect conditions; views as far as you like. A long walk in to Great End, (absolutely knackering carrying so much gear), place was packed but managed to get on the route without queueing. Overall not too difficult, Keith led, I folowed easily but need more practise and confidence before I lead. At the 'window' took the right hand icefall, quite steep and exhausting on legs removing ice screws. Keith wantedto do SE Gully but I was too tired. Grand day out!

jimorothy 7 Dec, 2008 AltLd Led pitches 1 and 3. Unbelievably good climb - obviously it's all in the conditions, loved surprise amphitheatre at the window. 3 'because I could' ice screws as runners on pitch 1 - we weren't sure we'd use an ice screw all day before setting off! Final party of the day meant final depleted ice on final ice wall, but still absolute magic. Beats Scotland any day (as long as it's one of the best Lakeland winter days for years - of course: bloody global warming!).
