Post Box Gully, Sgorr Ruadh – Sun 11th Dec

Archie and I went to Sgorr Ruadh for our first Winter route of the season. It was a bleak day and rather damp underfoot. There is alot of drifted snow above 300M but it was not until we got well above 700M that the temperature dropped to freezing. There is powder and spindrift everywhere but with some freeze/thaw it will consolidate. Turf not well frozen. The climb, (Post Box Gully grade II), is good with a great first pitch through a cave with a narrow exit. There were 3 short steps in the upper gully too. A good route in a wild area.
