Spiral Gully, Coire an t-Sneachda - 5th March 2011

Jeanie on the walk in to Coire an t-Sneachda. What a lovely day, felt very warm on the walk in.

A closer view of the crags from Aladdins to Goat Track. Still plenty of snow in the gullies, although the buttresses are bare. 

Jeanie on the crux pitch of the route, this being the left hand of the twin grooves. If you look closer another climber can be seen hot on the heels of Jeanie.

A view down from the belay below the direct finish towards Stuart and the coire further below.

A great view of Jeanie topping out on Spiral Gully into the wonderful sunshine.

A view across to Ben Macdui. Note the snowhole village used mainly by Glenmore Lodge for instructional purposes.

An early evening view across Loch Morlich towards the Nothern Corries where we were climbing.
