Coire An T-Sneachda climbing

Today I was in Coire an T-Sneachda. We had planed on climbing Fingers Ridge but conditions made it look pretty lean so we opted for one of the gully lines instead.

Four teams were making their way up The Runnel so we nipped up Crotched Gully instead. Probably about III in current condition but really enjoyable. Jen had two good lead pitches at the start and I finished off up the steep and imposing cornice.

At the top we got compasses quickly to hand and did a few nav points on the way down as practice for Jen’s Winter ML.

Below are a few photos of the coire to give an idea of conditions.
