Central Gully

The weather wasn't quite the blue skies and sunshine we were expecting but it was still good to be out in Coire an t-Sneachda. Sue and I went up Central Gully following behind Ron, Ken and Angus. The snow was soft on the surface but firm to kick into and the cornice was easy to avoid on the right.
It was quite breezy on the plateau so Sue and I headed back towards Point 1141 and after finding a sheltered spot for lunch, we had an easy walk down through Coire Cas.
We chatted to a guy who had been for a ski touring trip over to Ben Macdui and he advised that there was good cover though a bit of dodging rocks was needed in places and he only had to take the skis off to climb up Cairngorm so he could ski back down.
When we got down to the car park, I was asked if I would like to participate in a questionnaire on local issues!
