The (un)beaten path.
21st February 2016
(Above) More detailed pic of the mission. Balloon Gully is a steep SE-facing re-entrant on the side of Coire Ardair that gets cross-loaded readily when we have snow and drifting on West winds (and is sometimes corniced). The gully (left branch) was ‘loaded’ and not at all enticing – for obvious reasons – so opted for a location below the shelter of the crags.
Finding the path was a good game today. In the spirit of ‘Spot the Ball’ competitions of yore, here’s a wee on-line challenge for you: ‘Find the Footpath’!
Neither did I….
Skis or snow shoes would have been a good idea today (…why didn’t I think of that?…Doh!), or a co-operative trail-breaker. I had The Apprentice lined up again but
after looking out the window this morning he complained of having an “upset tummy” and cried off. (Actually, from his point of view, quiteÂ a wise move!)
