/ Bowfell Buttress descent options
when we finished BB yesterday coming over the top you quickly pass a very narrow col with smallish snow gullies either side (left and right (s, n)) where do these go ? Can they be used for descent,
we went up then down left (s) and down climbed down South Gully back to bags.
You can go left at the Col down into South Gully.
thanks, we just werent sure and it was not long before dark so didnt want to go down and come back up! Is it 'generally' (conditions dependent) quite safe and easy ? just for next time :-)
