10m. A little to the right of the start of Broad Gully there is a short steep icefall. Might be more like IV 4 if it builds up well. Good nut and friend belay a few metres back. The top out is dicey unless well frozen as the ice ends abruptly and beyond this there is some boggy ground (again this might be better if well iced). Trend up and left on easy ground to join Broad Gully itself.

It's the left hand icefall in this photo http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=134238 (which shows it in pretty fat condition - might be IV 4 if it's like that?)
