A tough and technical mixed route of great character. A must for any grade 7 leader. The original summer line can be followed at a slightly more technical but equally good VII 8
1) 6, 35m. Start 10m left of Western Gully. Gain and climb a shallow groove to a small ledge on the edge of an arete. Continue up to a spike belay on a good ledge
2) 7, 30m. Climb up and right to attack a groove on the right overlooking Western Gully
3) 4, 55m. Traverse left and climb mixed icy ground to belay on a ledge
4) 4, 55m. Trend left up more mixed icy ground to a good belay just left of a pinnacle
5) 1, 30m. Scramble to the right side of the ridge to gain a chimney. Climb this chimney to gain a ledge. Belay beneath a groove
6) 4, 30m. Follow the grassy groove to a small bay, step left to a corner and finish up a short crack in the final wall
7) 1, 70m. Easily up the ridge to finish.
