2 skiers + 1 gully = seriously good fun.
1st April 2018
(Above) Spotted two ski mountaineers weighing up a descent of Easy Gully. Top left on the skyline. For best detail, click on the photo, then right click and ‘open image in another tab’. The broad exit ramp of Easy Gully had only a little sun at this time so the snow hadn’t developed much of a mushy surface favoured by skiers at this time of year. The shaded areas were very cold with a covering of much drier snow.
(Above) Regrouping close to the lochan. Good effort! (I won’t publish the shot of one of you resorting to a ‘buttock arrest’ near the base of South Post!) Looked seriously good fun on a what was a stellar day. If you’re reading this, guys, I have many good and un-cropped shots of your descent. Contact me via the comments below and I’ll send them to you. BTW we were the ones who gave you a round of applause once you’d descended!
(Above) The crags of the Inner Coire of Coire Ardair. Fast travel on skis or foot today above 700m. Climbing parties on The Pumpkin and Diadem just visible in the photo. That gnarly cornice still looms over the entrance to Cinderella.
Weather won’t be so stellar on Monday. Cold and much windier with some snow showers in the afternoon.
