After mooching over to Aonach Dubh, we came back into the corie and traversed the unpleasant crusty snow to climb Forked Gully I. This was broken at the fork, but passable with little trouble. There was a team braving Dorsal Arete, but progress looked very slow which could have been down to poor/loose conditions. We walked back around the corie rim and dropped back in to descend down the main path. It was dry other than the moisture in the cloud, but we were sheltered in the corie.
With the warm weather set to last into the start of next week, climbing options are limited. I know that folks have been heading east to take advantage of the drier weather and easy gullies which have held out quite well.
