<< Oxford and Cambridge Climb < Dove Crags Left | The Eagles Claw > Y Gully >>
190m. 1)The gully line starts about 30m up the crag to the right of Dove Crag Gully. Thin ice is normally encountered and gear is sparse. Gain the gully proper by climbing a rightward slating slabby rampline. 2)Climb the gully on poor gear until an equally poor belay can be made below a bulge. 3)Step right around the bulge and continue to the small cave. The overhanging chimney above is climbed ( Friend on crux), to a small bay. Go over the small bulge above followed by a chockstone, step left to a ledge and belay 50m. 4)The angle eases off in the upper gully and one short steep step leads to the top 90m.
