- Follow usual route from 204 bivvy to 204e entrance and continue up the same gully to reach 204f. Climb up to left and follow ridge past 2002-08 to an obvious line of holes in a sloping slab. The A entrance is the northernmost hole, just below an obvious ~3m cliff.

Three entrances along an obvious N-S aligned rift connect underground. The largest is the A entrance, which in 2006 was descended via a rebelay and subsequent deviation to pass through a small hole in the floor of the shaft at around -18m. The landing is on a snow slope continuing down to the south. In 2006 this was blocked almost immediately, but in 2002 it could be followed for ~15m to reach a gap down one side of the snow plug. This point is 34m below the surface and a mere 9m above Crowning Glory in 204, but there does not seem to be a corresponding aven or snow pile.
