70m, 2 pitches. Originally known simply as: 'The Gully' and given a Moderate grade for non-frozen conditions. Ascend direct until the final steepening which is avoided on the left. If conditions permit, a direct finish up the steeper ground is enjoyable at about Grade II/III.

mikenewman 15 Jan, 2010 AltLd Got in just before the thaw in spite of road closures :-) Temperature was slightly higher than I would have liked in spite of it being a night ascent (which I would recommend every time). This climb, in spite of its relative ease, is pure magic for those who can't access N Wales or the Lakes, hence my third trip (1979, 2006, 2010). As I was climbing with someone on their first snow climb I took several axe belays which impressed me if no one else.
