7th January 2012 Creagan Coire Cha-no

Alan nearing the top of Chimney Rib.

I have been out today with Alan and Brian from the Falkirk High Tops Team on Creagan Coire Cha-no. We began by abseiling into Recovery Gully to check the snowpack before climbing Chimney Rib. The chimney had large amounts of snow in it, the route was rimed and the turf was frozen. We then abseiled back in and Brian led Recovery Gully.

The cornice above Recovery Gully is growing quite large at the moment due to the wind direction and windslab is building underneath the cornice.

John, David and Nigel climbed Anvil Gully reporting that the turf was not frozen on this route.
