1. Start up a broad fin with laybacks to a reasonable ledge. Belay.

2. Easier ground leads to a technical corner.

3. Climb the corner, turning left at the top to gain, (awkwardly with rucksack) a leftwards traverse with sensational exposure. In situ peg runner midway along the traverse. Belay at the end of the traverse.

3. Climb less technical ground to the top.

4. Abseil back into the gully below.
