Descending the North Gully

Description 

A short, clean and fun route to the summit - with marvellous vistas over the left edge.

Start at the toe of the slab, left of the North Gully. Pitch 1 has the crux, a jam crack finishing at the belay ledge. Stay as close to the edge as feasible. Pitch 3 is a little steeper, and looser, one more pitch will see you on the summit.

Location 

Descend down the North Gully.

Protection 

Small rack of nuts - with a few medium cams.
