21-01-10, Creag Meagaidh - Winter Climbing

Went to Creag Meagaidh with Kathryn today. The long walk in was well worth it. As we turned the corner and viewed the corrie, we could see the Post Face covered in snow and more importantly ice at the bottom of the routes. We climbed Staghorn Gully III, which was very good. Quite a lot of snow with a couple of ice pitches. Another team climbed The Pumpkin V,4 which looked in good condition as we descended the Window (picture below). There is a lot of ice at bottom of Last Post, South Post Direct looks climbable, if a little banked out.
