A long snow and ice gully, 1000+', will bring you to a sharp dogleg left once you reach the butress that splits Central and Greens Chasm. Continue up the snow gulley till you reach a large steep flow in the back of the gulley (WI 3+/4+). You can also break left at almost any point and climb the broken rock at M1 fun. Or stay left further up the gulley till it pinches off in the back, WI3.
Last of the major gullies before the webster slabs, approach as for shoestring, but keep heading up notch till you reach the slabs then trend up the right hand margin of the slabs.

The right hand finish was/is very thin and dry last weekend. Stick with the left hand chimney finish for now. Also, torturous walk off. Rap anything you can!
