Fairly good neve until the loose rock at the top. Not fully banked out so quite steep.

Banked out with soft snow thawing on a hot day. Sting in the tail at the top with 3-4m of ice. Dave climbed loose rocks at the lhs to avoid but I did the ice.

Ski descent after a 3am start from Inverness as Pete had an afternoon business meeting. Arriving at spot height 1141 and then crossing the plateau and traversing round to Castlegates as the sun rose was magical. Good snow in the gully, and needless to say we didn't see anybody else.

Skied after working nightshift and driving up from Edinburgh without any sleep - ascended up the Northern Corries path and out to Macdui, before descending Garbh Uisge Mor and into Castlegates Gully. 3 - 5 m broken section at the top which I scrambled down. Beautiful day to be out, but sitting having lunch at Loch Avon was when the tiredness kicked in - the climb back out again fairly wiped me out!
