The gully line on the left-hand edge of the
buttress. Six pitches that require a variety of fixed
gear. The crux is at pitch four with a problematic
rock step corner. The first ascent went up the
thin crack on the right and used a few points
of aid. Kester Brown and Jono Clarke climbed
the overhanging corner free—hard technical
climbing (M6) and runout to where the roof joins
the corner. The route does form as a big white-ice
line—in those conditions you’ll wonder what all
the fuss was about.
