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.

Plungeman 9 Jan, 2016 2nd O/S My my what a lot of powder. Getting there (from the car park, roads are fine) was the main issue. Not much snow in there by its usual standards - cornice took Dave about 2 minutes!

AndyP 2 Apr, 1994 Lead O/S 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.
