Beinn Udlaidh

Beinn Udlaidh today had plenty of windy weather, some good ice and avalanches on the top apron of most of the routes. Please be careful when topping out.

Beinn Udlaidh West sector.

Quartzvein Sccop is in good shape. Some of the icicles are dripping, but the ice is good.

Plenty of steep ice around Peter Pan Direct area.

Central Gully on the right side of this photo avalanched today, bringing down rocks, snow and two climbers, one with broken leg. Fortunately three rescue teams were having a ‘cuppa’ at the Bridge of Orchy Hotel. just fifteen minutes away. They had been on Beinn Dotaidh on another call-out. A helicopter that had been on Ben Nevis was also able to put down a medic in the corrie and effect a quick rescue. Well done.
