Spiral Gully

A great day today for north facing gullies in the Cairngorms. The SAIS avalanche forecast was bang on and the north facing gullies all swept clear of deep snow! Climbing conditions are on good neve and while this offers great placements for ice-picks it's not so easy to find protection and cams do not grip so well in the ice filled cracks! This is Jeff who is with me for a few days of Introductory Mountaineering, Spiral gully is a classic four pitch grade II
