Can any of you really honest climbers out there who climb Green Gully in the next twenty four hours and find a hammer, please return it to it’s owner, Chris Ensoll? Chris is staying with us this next week, so pop down to Calluna and get your free ‘dram’ and a slice of my wife’s flapjack.
By the way Green Gully is good.
Just writing to let you know about conditions in the Cairngorms yesterday. First up it was a stunning day, deep blue skies and almost no wind. We went to Hells Lum and did Hells Lum gully and Brimstone groove, both in great condition although the sun was starting to affect the ice at the top of Brimstone groove later on.
Deepcut Chimney looked to be in good condition, but the Chancer has not touched down and parts of it were falling off once the sun got onto it. What wind there was came from the north so there were some small powder deposits near the top of the crag
Another good day on the Ben.
Myself, Chris and Gillian headed up into Coire na Ciste and did Central-Right Hand which was in good condition with hero snow/Ice. Not taking screws though, so spaced protection.
We also did Wendigo also next to Central Right Hand. Excellent mixed route, with usable hero snow. The point was also done today by Guy, also Comb was climbed. Campbell will email some photo’s if you want for your blog.
