230m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The prominent gully on the far left of the crag gives a good and varied route
1) 3, 60m. Climb the gully, passing various chockstones (dependant on snow level) to belay in an easier-angled bowl of snow
2) 3, 30m. Climb the short icefall in the continuation gully (can be passed on the left at Grade II) and continue into the gully up and left
3) 1, 140m. The long snow-gully leads to the top. Various belay options exist. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The pleasant deepish gully joining the left-hand ridge of the face. The lower portion of the gully is blocked by two or three large boulders, If banked out these are passed at around grade 2, if not they're probably around grade 3 (and II/III is a more appropriate grade for the route). After these a snowy bay is reached, this is blocked by a short steep ice fall (3) either climb this or if it isn't formed climb snow and turf on the left at grade 2. Continue easily up the gully to the ridge and follow it to the summit.

powdery snow all the way, turf was not exactly frozen. Chockstones were a good little problem to pass, partner stated 'you made easy work of that' although I specifically remember having to use my head to get around them.

tricky move on first rock step, long and atmospheric pitches above, finished on summit at 6pm in golden setting sun.

A bit thin, but good fun anyway. Avoided icefall as top wasn't fully formed.

A good climb and in good condition, but the Rockfax grade of III 3 felt about right for today. Led the first two pitches and then soloed the easier snow slopes above.

First winter climb, really enjoyed it! Seconded the first two harder pitches and one of the easier top pitches, and led one of the top easier pitches.

Rock steep at start difficult, Snow nice and firm, but could do with a little more. Finished in the dark with one headtourch between us. All in all it lived up to its name!

Tricky rock step low down. Rest of climb well consolidated. Pretty epic day out.

Well banked out, turned the massive cave on the left. line up the right would have gone with more ice, and a belayer! Nice route.
