Lochan, Glen Coe
The last two days I have been up to the Lochan in Glen Coe with Jagged Globe. Both times I was looking at snow anchors, though with different clients.
Yesterday we made an ascent of Broad Gully, but the same snow was very soft this morning with a little bit of overnight debris evident. So today we used the East-facing walls on the West side of the corrie, which provided us with much harder snow. Upon completion of our our bucket digging roped ascent we summited then descended the NE ridge - a grand excursion!
Now need to go to bed a little earlier now to cope with the 0745 meetings.
