NC Gully

After an easy walk in yesterday, the walk to Lochain was so much nicer today. Once in the corie I was suprised at how quiet it was. This gave us the pick of the routes. As things had firmed up quite well, we chose NC Gully. It was not as firm as I had thought it might be, but offered a nice climb through some cool rock scenery. Izzi did all the leading today, and coped very well with the bold nature of the climbing today. We topped out into glorious sunshine and stunning views over Lochaber. Think we will head to the Ben tomorrow to revisit some snow belays and Ice screws.

The buttresses had mostly been stripped in their lower sections. Scabbard and Raeburn's were ok though.
