At the top of the gully is a 15-foot natural tunnel. Climb up this.

How possible this is at the present time is unclear.

My friend had climbed down into the hole from above, hid there and scared the sh*t out of me when I turned the corner and lit him up with my headtorch and he shouted 'boo' :P Main Gully is a lot cleaner than it has been in previous years, and is now a lot easier to get up (stick to the left hand edge?).

Initially went further up Colonel's Arete than usual to see if it was possible to traverse higher up into Main Gully (it wasn't) and had to downclimb before tackling the horror of Main Gully (possibly the scariest thing I have done at Dewerstone on lead!), after which the Tunnel feels quite refreshing! Still well worth it though :)

Had to take all the gear off my front gear loops to get out at the end... also getting up Main Gully was... interesting...
