07-02-12, Coire an Lochain, Cairngorms - Winter Climbing
Coire an Lochain
Second day of winter climbing for Avy today. We climbed Y Gully RH (II) in Coire an Lochain. In general the Corie is quite dry on some parts and well rimed on others, especially on the top 50m or so. Bomber neve nearly everywhere. Quite windy today, still sunny. Avalanche activity has been spotted over the back of the plateau, so even though there isn't full snow coverage, there is still some large amounts of slab about.
