ChrisH89 25 Mar, 2016 Solo dnf Soloed up gully in pleasant consolidated snow conditions but not able to get through the massive cornice at the top. Cornice was stable but drooping and undercut and not worth the risk for a grade I tick, so downclimbed back to CIC and walked out. Frustrating to get within about a metre of the plateau and not top-out!

vmivanov 15 Mar, 2015 Solo O/S First winter gully climb. Good weather, a bit too warm. Overall well consolidated, though melting, snow with some hard ice sections in the shadowed areas. An interesting surprise was a deep and huge horizontal snow crack about 4m long and 30cm wide near the top. Carefully went around and kept going. Cornice at the top was easy to get past though the snow below it was fairly slushy.
