Vanishing Gully

Andy cruising up pitch 1

Approaching the belay
 Today we wanted a short walk, short day, but still a good grade V.  Vanishing Gully V,5*** fits the bill.  This is in great condition, with hero sticks the whole way.  The belay in the cave was a little wet, but it did not detract from the quality climbing.  Andy was quite glad that the route was much easier than yesterday, and is now hopefully rested to do a bigger V tomorrow.  There were loads of teams out and about again today taking advantage of the excellent ice.

All smiles aftyer the crux
