06-02-12, Coire an t-Sneachda, Cairngorms - Winter Climbing
Today I have been out climbing with Avy, on an introduction to winter climbing course. We headed to t-Sneachda and climbed Central Gully Left Hand (I/II). It had some annoyingly deep pockets of snow in the gully proper, which we avoided and climbed the rib to the right. The top half was scoured, icy and good. Other teams were out on the buttresses and gullies. The top out was excellent, hard neve, and fantastic views.
