/ SCNL Today (Sat 5th)
Broad Gully (and maybe Boomerang?) are the only 2 complete routes in the coire, everything else is broken or incomplete. Broad is pretty bare on the scree fan at the bottom. Plenty teams/soloists out in both gullies today, but hellish hard work - lots of wet sinky snow everywhere. Really needs a freeze before recommending anyone go up there for anything other than exercise. though looking at MWIS any decent freeze is a long way away...
Ok, it wasn't stellar conditions, but my pals had a great day on their first real Grade I.
Boomerang isn't complete btw....
Good stuff, glad they got something done!! We just went up the pinnacle area for quick wade, couldn't face Broad Gully in current nick!!
Yeah, wasn't sure about Boomerang, looked full but cloud level was teasing us with view of the top section.
