Goat Track Gully, Cairngorms

With the possibility of drier weather in the morning we raced East to get ahead of the incoming ming. Leaving a wet Fort William we arrived in a drier though windy Aviemore.

We headed into the Snechda, with the idea that Peter and Dave took over today. With incoming snow and not too keen on the idea of wandering around on the plateau we opted for Goat Track Gully. This offered some lean but icy pitches and then a traverse to escape down Goat Track itself.

With the wet snow falling (freezing level must of been above the crag) we decided it was time for coffee.

I was working for West Coast Mountain Guides today.

Kath has also been out with Angus for the last two days. Yesterday they bagged Ledge Route and today they followed us East to climb The Slant.
