An excellent easy gully on the NE side of the Horns. There may be a tunnel under an easy chockstone and a short ice pitch in the narrows when conditions are lean.

Ticklists: 3 star Scottish winter.

Thaw was in fuller effect than anticipated, ice falling into the gulley all over the place, was like a shooting gallery with me as the duck, plus extra swimming, 3 steps up and 2.5 half steps down. Still reckon it would be a stunning place to be in full nic, VERY atmospheric...

Gully complete just but thawing. The side walls are black now.

Pretty immense place! Brief view of a golden eagle from about mid way up. A small ice pitch (very cruddy) and two chockstones to squeeze under.

Plenty of snow. Finished by Alligin ridge - a great day out.

Working. The lower part of the gully was soft, and very easy for grade, beyond chockstone was a bit icier.

deep sugary snow made for hard work. Nice ice on the side walls though. The ridge is sugary and melting too.
