Corie an t Sneachda
Today we climbed in the Northern Corries of the Grampian mountains, otherwise known as the Cairngorms. These photos are of Chris on Spiral Gully with variations... its very thin but sporty, turf frozen with really very little consolidated snow. Some of my friends went over to Hells Lum and hoped to do Brimstone Grooves, but they found the ice very friable with water and slush below... so backed off! They reported that the cornices are large with lots of deep snow. On corrie rims there is lots of snow on lee slopes!
