Half-way up Gully 2 is a broad groove, steeper than the main line, which breaks left up a series of turfy steps. Follow these until the groove broadens and becomes less steep onto the summit slopes to emerge south of the summit shelter.
This has been climbed a billion times before but isn't recorded in the new winter guide - so bagsy! (Er, I mean, here it is for the record).

Snow was soft and insecure in the afternoon making it feel hard for the grade. Found a few pieces of rock gear to protect the moves. Topped out onto a bare Helvellyn summit.

Great conditions today - the odd patch of soft snow but plenty of neve and ice. Windy! Spindrift blowing upwards a bonus.

Whoever the insanely psyched dude was that told me to climb this - Thanks, definitely a good shout!
