Staghorn Gully Creag Meagaidh

On Wednesday we enjoyed the walk in to Coire Ardair along the well beaten path to the base of the long ramp to Staghorn Gully. Very deep snow led up the ramp with occasional nice bits of neve. Belayed at the foot of the Gully and enjoyed lovely climbing on ice. Nobody else around either! Near to the top it became quite windy and spindrift starting piling down on Ian as he belayed me. Topped out as it began to snow. Pleasant walk off down to the Window and back out along the path. A group were snow-holing in the Window.
