Anyone know the angle of the headwall on Ben Lui? (Top of Central Gully, assuming enough snow to kick steps to the top).

About 45-50 degrees, from memory.

Thanks, Tim. Itís been a few years since I did this so I needed some info for arm-chair route-picking purposes.

It's not as steep as it looks, mostly. The very last bit can be steeper than that, of course, depending on conditions.

Great pics. Snow conditions look similar to the day I did it as my third Munro. Just a walking axe and B2 boots but my first experience of a proper way up a hill: magic. Cloud inversion as well that day.

In reply to Dom Slater: did it once on Christmas day back in the 60,s kicked steps all the way ,got to the top part and it was quite steep and icey ,with no crampons made it a bit scary ..
