Good hard Snow in the Cairngorns

Today I was in Sneachda with Simon and Jacqui. They led Central Gully Left hand on good hard snow. The top section had an excellent ice pitch which took good screws and was at the top of the grade for II. There were many folk out on the trident gullies, Invernookie, the Seam, Jacob's ladder. The gully exits are quite steep, but clear and firm. there is a crusty layer over the top that needs care.
