Brief foray up Broad Gully, 3rd March


Martin had shoulder surgery just a few weeks ago so a gentle try-out was in order.

Broad Gully on Sgurr a Bhasteir is still holding plenty of well consolidated snow despite the thaw.

The mists still swirled around as we topped out so we skipped continuing up to the summit.

Descending to the lochan in Coir’ a’ Bhasteir we were greeted by the sight of 25+ members of Skye MRT all brandishing avalanche probes.

Apparently they had buried Jonah somewhere in the corrie for the exercise. There didn’t seem too much hurry and I couldn’t work out why they were all filing the ends of the probes…..:)

A wee bit of concentration to get out of the corrie and then a sprint to the pub which has finally reopened; yipee!
