4 pitches. A great wee climb, left of No.4 Gully. The first pitch is the crux, a narrow gully of about 30m, usually ice near the top and quite steep for a grade II. The rest of the route opens out into a broad fan. There are two options from here, the left is graded III and the right still at around I/II. This is an open slope/fan and could well be prone to avalanche. Finishes just to the left and above No. 4 Gully. Great route and never seen anyone here, good place for quietness!

βeta: Route in poor condition. Gear hard to place. Wet snow, unconsolidated. Made the crux pitch a little bolder than the grade 2 advertised! However, once up into the basin its an easy plod to the top. No cornice to speak off. Down number 4 gully for descent.
