[Tim discovering that this cranny is too crumbly, 1 kb]The obvious chimney/gully on the right wall of the Left Hand Branch of the Black Spout. Steep snow leads to the cornice which is usually very awkward, sometimes requires tunneling.

Beautiful conditions to start but full-on cairngorm blizzard on the plateau. Managed to stick my axe in my knee digging through the cornice. Crawled along the plateau for a couple of metres to set up the belay leaving a trail of blood. Good intro to winter climbing.
