Dinnertime Buttress/Number 2 Gully Link Up

Caroline, Chris, Tom and I visited Glencoe today. Following the recent snowfall and the forecast rapid rise in temperature, we opted to link Dinnertime Buttress and the upper section of Number 2 Gully to give us a safe route. The choice worked well with good snow present in Number 2 Gully after the introductory scrambling on the buttress below.

After gaining the summit of Aonach Dubh we practised ice axe arrest skills before descending Stob Coire nan Lochan in heavy rain.
