100m, 2 pitches. Start 10m up West Gully, at the same place as Watery Fowls. This route follows the left facing corner just left of the steep cracked wall of Watery Fowls and gives good technical mixed climbing.
1. 40m Climb the corner until it blanks out, step slightly left and follow the continuation above to reach a large spike belay. A good pitch.
2. 60m Directly above is a turfy groove, climb this and move left on snow and ice before traversing rightwards to reach an icy groove. Climb a widening crack immediately left of the groove and then easier ground to reach a belay just below Tower Ridge.
