Easy Gully

10th January 2024

After a couple of lovely sunny days, it was a cloudy day on Creag Meagaidh today. The cloud was thin, and at time the sun could be seen through the cloud. I followed a team up Easy Gully. As well as getting up high to see what is in the top of the gullies, it also gave me a chance to see how the ice is forming on the Post Face. There is a reasonable amount of ice there, but it looked and sounded quite hollow with water audibly running down the back. However, some ice is better than no ice, and a few more storm cycles should improve things.

Loch Ardair is now frozen over. The cloud didn’t really clear from the crags through the day.

The initial icefall of South Post didn’t look too appealing. There was ice there, but there was also quite a lot of running water behind the ice. 

The initial icefall of Last Post was looking a bit more substantial. However, there was still the sound of water running down behind the ice.
