Alexander_Metcalfe 2 Mar AltLd O/S An easy gulley that could have been soloed. Grade I three quarters of the way up, before the snow turned harder to the appropriate II. Some ice on the sides of the gulley, but was thawing and full of air. Lack of snow on the sides meant it was easier to find protection.

Probably around 40m+ of pretty good ice through the narrower section was great fun, but the fun ended higher up. Horrible unconsolidated snow giving way everywhere and worsening towards top. Had to chop away the soft cornice to get out (very unpleasant). It's a great climb and had the snow been better this would have been my fave day out! But be warned, this gully is especially unpredictable

ckmoffat 22 Jan, 2011 Lead dnf Didn't quite go to plan. Swam through snow for the majority of the gully, difficult to find runners and the occasional good belay. Ran the last pitch out too far, couldn't surmount the cornice and didn't have enough rope to escape it on the left, panicked and froze, couldn't go back down and had to be rescued. All in all an eventful route but not something I want to repeat anytime soon.

Andy Clarke 16 Apr, 2001 Solo Soloing seemed like a great idea until we arrived at the cornice. First time I'd seen one close up from underneath. Overhanging and creaking in a particularly sinister way. Eventually got over, with a long sling around an icicle for protection. Then had to borrow rope from a party on top, to bring Chris up - since ours was in his rucksac! Still got a bit to learn about this winter lark.

Simon Caldwell 14 Mar, 1993 AltLd O/S Martin 'led' the first 'pitch'. We then decided we'd move together, as he wasn't placing any gear, and trying to excavate a belay seat was taking ages. I then 'led' the last 'pitch', in that Martin stood to one side holding the rope while I climbed through the cornice with rope attached. I don't think he was actually belayed to anything. All the gear and no idea, only without all the gear.
