John and I were out today with Doug, David and Graham on a Falkirk Community Trust Winter Climbing day. We climbed West Gully on Beinn Udlaidh with one of the left hand finishes to get on to some steeper ice/snow at the top.
The gully still has water running in places and underneath the snow on some of the easier angled sections, but a dry ascent could be made today.
A few other teams out in the coire with one climbing Quartzvein Scoop, which looked thin from a distance. Most of the routes in the coire are forming, but still require some more ice to build. The turf wasn’t frozen at the top of the crag, West Gully doesn’t use turf, so difficult to say whether exposed turf would be frozen on the crag itself. Below freezing at crag height today, but only just and the Northerly winds were relatively light.
