125m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A classic route with a tough and steep second pitch. The more ice the better
1) 2, 30m. Follow the gully until it closes in. Belay below an icy left-wall
2) 5, 30m. The chimney is overcome by strenuous bridging and then a step onto the left wall proper. Climb this to a good belay
3) 3, 35m. Climb over the large chockstone and belay beneath the final exit chimney
4) 3, 30m. Climb the chimney and a steep snow slope to finish. Belay well back. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Brilliant icy gully climb. The second crux pitch goes at sustained mixed V 6 if the ice-fall isn't fully formed, or climb Clogwyn Central.

βeta: Climbed in very lean conditions, backed off after P2 and went for a walk around the Glyders instead. Although the turf was frozen around the buttresses, it wasn't frozen deeper in the gully, hence the back out. Good value for money, and will definitely be back for it... with ice screws this time.
