βeta: Bomber Winter Conditions - today was more powdery than an Escobar Birthday. Whilst my new Temres Showa gloves had the appearance of items used for morgue work / clearing toxic waste they did render my hands toasty warm & also dexterous- a rare combination in cold weather gear. The route itself was not dissimilar to a winter walk however the number of groups challenged a judges houses episode of X-Factor (happily, however, there was no sign of Louis Walsh). Team @HWOTMCAC used a rope but essentially free soloed it (whilst tied together) due to the amount of wanky Insta-worthy video content on offer on the once in a decade event that is a blue sky / in condition Scottish gully combination. Just like when Jen & Tim conceived the twins it was a pleasing day out.

βeta: Wonderful day, short bit of ice about 1/3rd of the way up but nothing too tricky, could've done with a second axe. Great conditions, good to finally get out this winter

βeta: Alpine conditions. Fantastic gully. Amazing day! Went on to downclimb Diagonal Gully then up Castlegates Gully, as per route in Garry Smith's book- Scotland's Winter Mountain's with One Axe. Highly recommended!
