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.
