27-02-13, Sgorr Ruadh, Glen Carron, NW Highlands - Winter Climbing

The 'easy bit' on Easy Gully, Sgorr Ruadh!
Sgorr Ruadh in the North-West today. We walked up the fine 4 km path to the cliff. Hard neve still about, not many climbs in condition however. The only probable line was Easy Gully to the right of Central Couloir. It has a steep section at the bottom but no gaps yet! It is certainly not guidebook grade II either, definitely some III there not so 'Easy' gully! The view deteriorated through out the day, cloud and dark skies rolling in as the temperature has also started to rise.
The right hand side of  Central Couloir.
