Short day: Look C gully

Arno and I had time for a short day so we left Dundee at 8 am and drove to Glen Clova to do Look C gully in Corrie Fee. Here is Arno entering the corrie...

... and here is the gully.

One team had given up and informed us that there was a slow moving team of three ahead. We went in second position and climbed up. The team of three were the Trudgill brothers Pete and John and Will. Pete led the crux and then John and Will one by one. Here is the team on belay...
... and here is Pete leading the crux.
After that the wider, easier, upper part of the gully.
Here is Arno, sans helmet (left in the car), moving up to the belay.

Whilst the Trudgill turbos finished the gully...

... we decided to get out of the way and to do a mixed finish. A few tech 5/6 moves were on this section.

A soup and pint in the Glen Clova hotel and home just after 6 pm.
