John snug on his belay with his green jacket on Green Gully
Powering up the route!
Today I was back out with John for the first day of his 5 days winter climbing. The plan for the week is a bit of mileage a bit of leading, a bit more mileage and some grade V action, something John has been really keen to get involved with. We started our week on the classic Green Gully (IV,4) which gave great climbing in a very quiet Coire It was great to be climbing this route without getting bombarded from other folk. The left hand finish at the top give a direct finish and a wee bit more ice climbing and is well worth doing. From the top we headed straight for Number 4 gully for our descent and also to check out the route that John will lead tomorrow. Another stunning day!
