Northern Corries, Cairngorm

Conditions are thin but not so bad. Turf is well frozen but there is a lack of consolidated snow. Gully exits and scarp slopes of a Northerly aspect have pillows of poorly bonded wind slab and were worthy of respect and required very careful route choice today!

Chris in Crotched Gully. The steep traverse pitch going rightward and the top of the first snow bay was awkward and very thin today, much harder than it's grade.
