Lurchers Gully

Skinned up to the summit of Cairngorm from the Ciste car park then over Cairn Lochain and down Lurchers Gully to the Punch Bowl car park. Manged a few teles in heavy snow conditions.

A beautiful spring day. The ski area looked horribly busy. There were massive queues for most of the tows.

Coire an Lochain looked really dangerous with a big crack at the top of the slab. Thankfully no one was climbing there today.
