Very good snow-ice in Thuilm Right-Hand 600 ft, grade II. Sun 27 Feb.


We climbed the right hand of the obvious gullies leading to the summit today.

MikeA sharp approach from the Fairy Pools up steep grass, scree then through the defending rock band led us to the terrace that splits the upper & lower sections of these obvious fault lines in 2 hours. Once reached the old snow was in superb condition and gave 200m of easy but physical climbing on the front points of our crampons. We moved together throughout but took breaks for photos and calves to recover!

The route has superb character becoming increasingly enclosed……

….before emerging 100m from the summit

Views of the Ridge and out to the Hebrides weren’t too shoddy either…
