A groove and a gully

Today Campbell and I headed up into Stob Coire nan Lochain in Glencoe and climbed Twisting Grooves (IV,5) which follows a couple of chimneys which provide some really good climbing. The turf was bomber and most of the cracks were clear of ice. We descended Broad Gully (I) and then headed over and climbed SC Gully (III) as its a route I have never done and one that everyone else has. This also is a brilliant route with good ice and a nice little crux section. Lots of snow around but didn't really notice any windslab. Cornices were looking pretty healthy though. Teams on Twisting Gully, SC, Dorsal and Tilt (got some really good photo's of them, check out the belayer getting showered with spindrift)
