Broad gully, Glen Coe

Today we were in Broad gully on Stob Corie nan Lochan. It is the biggest patch of snow in Glen Coe at the moment but still pitifully small. We made the most of what we had to build on the skills seen and introduced yesterday; snow anchors, buried axe, bucket seat, clove hitch, body belaying and good footwork.   

We didn’t stick around long in the damp conditions and slushy snow.  Summer mountaineering tomorrow is plan A.
