13-03-13, Sgorr Ruadh, Glen Carron, North West Highlands - Winter Climbing

Fuar Tholl and Sgorr Ruadh.
Something slightly easier requested today - so that will obviously be Easy Gully, II on Sgorr Ruadh then! Ridiculous name, ridiculous grade. It was definitely still grade III today as it was a couple of weeks ago. The first proper pitch has a significant steepening, on helpful hard neve, but steeper than II. There was some powdery snow on the lower pitches but the top half was excellent hard neve. Another beautiful blue bird sky, it did change by 3 with some new snowfall and cloud but still very pleasant.

Easy Gully.
Terrance on the approach slope.
Meall nan Ceapairean.
Fuar Tholl.
At the top of the steepening on pitch 1.
