A classic traditional style route, with a varying number of ice pitches, taking the obvious curving gully. Excellent climbing and situations, often more difficult than it might appear from below due to powder snow in the steep middle section. If this is the case it may be easier to climb the slabby rocks to the left of the groove, and traverse back into the gully once it lies back again. There is a choice of exits at the top, but staying in the main gully is recommended.
