 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.
