Beinn Udlaidh, Doctor's Dilemma

There's still a lot of snow around and we wanted a short day that avoided any avalanche risk so have been back to Ben Udlaidh. Warning - avoid the left side and routes like Quartzvein Scoop,they are very full of snow and banked out. I suggest AVOIDING the left side of the clifff from Sunshine Gully.
The popular route today was Doctor's Dilemma IV.4 180mtrs.


We set off behind 2 very efficient pairs so no hold ups, and were soon joined by Bruce who was guiding 2 climbers for West Coast Mountain Guides / Alan Kimber so I snapped some pictures and dropped them off with Alan Kimber later.


The ice formation at the top included some spectacular overhanging "umbrellas" of ice


Yup, another sunny day.
