Broken Leg Gully

(0 routes)

Several rock routes exist in this gully, on a section of pillared cliff at the bottom of the North West Face of Great Pinnacle. Most are naturally protected, but a prominent and attractive arête has a couple of bolts (these are fairly old and should be treated with caution). The arête is about grade 21.
At the head of Broken Leg Gully an ephemeral but vertical fang of ice forms in early winter. About 15m high, it is often sheltered from the wind. Several other 20–30m lines have been climbed in the lower gully, although they can be exposed to avalanche hazard from Grand Gully after heavy snowfalls. Grades WI2–4, around 15m high.
