Penguin Gully

Never saw a soul

Better than Everest?!

No map...its ok, we have a guidebook

Wow!  Not much to say about this other than a massive walk in, an amazing setting, the climbing was fantastic and a massive walk out!  Penguin Gully (III,4)**** on Beinn Dearg was worthy of its 4 star status. Tom Patey, again, unlocked an amazing journey up a isolated and remote mountain.  A truly spectacular day.  It felt like a gamble heading in there as you cant see the route until you stand right below it.  We were rewarded with a truly unforgettable day.  A big day.  A mighty 350m route which we dispatched in the same time we took to walk in.  Cant wait to go back in there with someone else!  An amazing grade V ice route to the right to do too!
