andy007 3 Apr Solo O/S ...probably not the best route to do on my own today!... Lots of deep powder. Lots of spindrift. Top layer graupel continuously sliding! The top out was deep and really tough. But a good route and I would love to come back in more consolidated/ stable conditions!!

O'Donopoo 19 Mar, 2018 Solo Quick scramble up the East Ridge and then dropping down a semi complete A Gully into the cwm. Opted for C Gully as it looked a little more exciting than Banana Gully as originally planned. Beautiful weather with panoramic views, well worth skiving lecture for.

jandyd05 8 Jan, 2011 Solo O/S Was supposed to be just walking and maybe just plodding up banana gully hence only 1 general purpose axe but couldn't resist! Quite thin around the chockstones and by general consensus on UKC climbing at around a III - quite scarey at crux with my single axe but felt great !
