Rockfax Description
The parallel line to Laddie's Gully is another great outing with wonderful climbing
1) 2, 60m. Follow the stepped gully past some interesting pulls to a belay where it steepens
2) 3, 25m. The steep section gives a great ice-pitch with a stiff pull to finish
3) 1, 110m. Continue up the gully and snow slope to gain the ridge, well right of the summit. © Rockfax

Pete_Frost 1 Mar, 2014 Solo O/S Snow and ice conditions weren't perfect making the transition to easy ground after the crux groove a bit more exciting than I would have preferred. A nice line.
