5th to 7th February, 2010 – Corran Weekend


Ah, bliss! A day off work to kick off a long weekend of climbing, walking and socialising.

Our original plan of an ascent of ‘Red Gully’ on Sgor na h-Ulaidh, was shelved after reviewing the avalanche forecast which rated slopes of that aspect as considerable. Instead, we headed for a walk (aided by cable car) up Aonach Mor with the intention of dropping from the summit down between this hill and Carn Mor Dearg and walking back out to pick up the cable car back down.

The wind and whiteout conditions we met persuaded us to abandon our plan and after a brief chat in the warmth of a ski centre hut with one of the ski-patrol staff, we ambled back down for a beer and lunch.

A relaxed afternoon waiting for others to arrive followed by dinner and chat in the Corran Inn.
