Today I was in Sneachda with Alisa and Cathrine who are both 6th year students at George Watson's College. They led Spiral Gully in 5 pitches, which is their first lead. There was a soft layer of snow, with firmer snow underneath. The route also had some good ice sections that had survived the warmer weather. There was a few cornices still above the trident gullies, as well as Jacob's Ladder. After topping out, we walked around and over 1141 and out. A great day out.
