It was another dry and cold day again in The Highlands. Fred, Jamie and I were down at Beinn a' Dothaidh, south of Glencoe today. We went up the very scenic West Gully which is the grade 1 route close to all the harder climbs on the NE aspect of the mountain. The weather was much better than forecast with a bright spell around mid day, with some light cloud cover on the summits and only the odd snow flurry in a light wind. There was a team on Taxus which is probably the most well known climb in the area, looking good with plenty of ice. No one had been up West gully recently so nice to be climbing on un trodden snow. Cornice was ok and easily bypassed to the left.
