NC gully and Dorsal arete.

Back out with Angus and Gary today for Abacus mountain guides and the guys wanted to have a bit of a skills recap so they could be a bit more self sufficient. We headed up to Stob Coire nan Lochan with a couple of option and ended up on NC gully which the guys led themselves up with some coaching. With a bit of extra time to kill before we had to head down we headed over to Broad gully, descended this for 50m and then headed back up the fin of Dorsal arete for some fun and exhilarating climbing.
The freezing level was at about the top of the crags today with the rock dripping in places. We did have a few showers of wet snow but not enough to be any bother. Lots of teams out, SC gully, Twisting gully, Twisting grooves, Dorsal arete and Forked gully to name a few.
