250m. An excellent easy gully on the NE side of the Horns. There may be a tunnel under an easy chockstone and a short ice pitch in the narrows when conditions are lean. Follow the snow slope up and right to finish on easing ground to the col between the first and second Horn.

Sam Shilliday 5 Mar, 2017 Solo dnf Very warm day and sun melting the snow as we started. After a bit of a heather scramble we stuck to the shadows of the gully and moved quickly. Reaching the top we realised we were one gully away from Deep South gully so had to traverse back round before walking to the top of the first horn.

Busby 11 Mar, 2016 Solo Thaw was in fuller effect than anticipated, ice falling into the gulley all over the place, was like a shooting gallery with me as the duck, plus extra swimming, 3 steps up and 2.5 half steps down. Still reckon it would be a stunning place to be in full nic, VERY atmospheric...
