Spiral Gully







The weather forecast was far too promising to spend the day inside so Sue and I went into Coire an t-Sneachda to climb Spiral Gully. We were lucky that there was only one party above us and they were pretty far up the route before we started so we almost had it to ourselves except for the rather brightly dressed guy who soloed up behind us. We let him pass and he romped away off to the top whilst we were still getting ourselves sorted at our belay.
There was lovely ice in our second pitch and some very solid ice in our last pitch. The rest was perfect neve - couldn't have been better!

Hey thanks for the photo on your blog, did not realise I was so bright!!!! Hope you had a good day, direct finish was a bit sketchy on a solo, brittle ice, focussed the mind for sure, but good fun all the same.
Cheers
