Dorsal Arete - February 2013


 Walking into Stob Coire nan Lochan, Dorsal Arete to the right of Broad Gully in the centre  Still walking in...  The obvious weaknesses in the buttress are (L->R) Twisting Gully and S.C. Gully  Looking up towards Forked Gully with Twisting Gully to the right  Second pitch of Dorsal Arete  Mike approaching the crux on pitch 3  Fiona belaying on pitch 3  Mike clambering up the fin  Mike clambering over the fin  Now sprawled on top of the fin  Still on the fin  Fiona seconding pitch 3  Fiona on top of the fin, all difficulties over  Fiona on pitch 4, just a short way to the top  Fiona on pitch 4  Soloist on Forked Gully left branch  Soloist on Forked Gully left branch  Mike seconding pitch 4  Fiona belaying  Another team on the fin   Another team seconding the fin  Downclimbing Broad Gully, lots of monster bucket steps to trip up on  Mike walking back towards the Lochan  Looking back towards the coire from the walk out
