Take the left gully at the second fork of Avalanche Gully. A short pitch to start then under a big chockstone to a steep pitch, which is rarely in condition. A further pitch is usually climbed on the left to easier snow then the top. It is possible to escape out left or onto the easy buttress on the right. However, there is a small through route in the roof of the final deep cave, you'll need your rucksacks off for this though!
