After our long day yesterday on An Teallach, Graham and I opted for another long day walking into Beinn Dearg to see if Penguin Gully was climbable. To be honest, it was such a warm night there was little hope but the small matter of an 9km walk in was not to stop us. On arrival near the routes in some thick clag, the temperature had still not dropped and we could hear ice falling. Whilst scoping out the bottom of the crag, a large peice of ice fell off in front of us and it was decision made. Another 9km back out saw us at the van with the kettle on. Penguin Gully may survice the thaw but today was not the day for climbing it, not for us anyway.
