Passing that way tomorrow and fancy a quick half day. Is there anything steep enough in the corrie for a bit of solo winter mucking about? I'm picturing a grade I type headwall, but I've never been up there. Ta

Yes, a couple of short gullies and some turfy mixed ground in between (which may just bank out). Have a look at this gallery http://gallery.askur.org/v/Halli/Utivist/album478/

Photos here from a couple of weeks ago: looks mostly banked out: http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=28739
In reply to Mark Bull: Very handy, thanks a lot Mark. It'll be a new Munro tick or two for me too (not that I'm collecting)

You're very welcome!

Of course you aren't :-)
In reply to Mark Bull: You were right Mark; very banked out, and one or two bits of cornice had dropped off as well. I gave it a miss.

Useful to know: I guess it's probably only worth considering in very lean conditions.
In reply to Mark Bull: Sounds about right. Good afternoon to be out though, and three new Munros for me

Looked very banked out looking over to it on the way south last night.

Here is a topo and some blog posts from some time ago that may help:

In reply to Dan Bailey - UKHillwalking.com: Nice one, thanks Davy. That was all well buried but the topo could be useful in future
