Central Gully

Today Alan and I went back into Coire an t-Sneachda to find another gully to climb. Folk were already heading off to Spiral Gully and The Runnel which were our first two choices so we climbed up to Central Gully away from the crowds. The snow was so much firmer than yesterday and there was an icy bulge in the lower section and lots of rime ice on the rock. Even the cornice felt solid compared to the slushiness of yesterday.
We both got a suitable quantity of rime ice on ourselves, clothing and gear to give a lovely wintry feel to the day!
Ron did a bit of a last minute sprint up Spiral Gully late on this afternoon and pictures from him are here!
