UKC

120m, 3 pitches. Offers obvious belays and rock runners. The chimney is very nice as is the steeper finish. The top exit is the crux and is run out.

βeta: Soft Snow. Central Gully Avalanched on approach. Chimney section bare and challenging. Limited Ice formed. Cornice Approach is soft and challenging. Team Ahead sent some our way. A great day out but the route does really need a few cycles as its far from in.

βeta: Loose block half way up gully in centre of gully. Looks like an obvious place to put a sling. DON'T.

βeta: Chimney is threadbare due to lack of snow. Probably closer to III + for that section. Bottom two are frozen and work well.

βeta: Bomber neve all the way up. Crux chimney banked out so only I/II. No cornice. Closing the snow gate at Glenmore is bulls**t!
