Spiral Gully

I met Mark this morning who I have worked with before. He wanted to try a bit of winter climbing, so we headed into Sneachda to have a look. There has been a lot off snow melted in the thaw, but all the classic gullies are still in great condition. We climbed Spiral Gully with a few variations. Mark did very well following up some thin ice to take a straight line to the bend before more, slightly steeper ice up the gully straight above the bend. We then came back down into the corie and top roped some ice beneath the Fiacaill and did a little movement coaching before walking out. The weather was not as good as forecast, but the day was very good all the same.
