200m, 5 pitches. The largest and obvious gully line at the south end of Heather Terrace splitting the east face. The route comprises a relatively easy series of snow slopes leading to stopped gullies and steps then a easy exit pitch to the ridge south of the summit. Climb direct though the first step on the left (awkward) or to the right over polished rock avoiding this. Follow the obvious line through a shorter step and up a slope to a central buttress. Staying left follow the gully above and climb the step and the slope above to another central buttress. Take the right gulley this time and climb the last step, into the amphitheatre under the summit. Exit to the back left onto the ridge. Good deep snow will simplify climbing the steps and increase enjoyment.
