CAPTION

The aluminium marker post at the head of Number Four Gully was installed in 1954 by Dr Donald Duff. Ever since, it has been a welcome sight for climbers searching for the top of Number Four Gully in poor visibility. The post was originally straight, but has been bent over the years by parties using it as an abseil anchor.
