Jacobs Ladder 20th May 2015

A quick late May afternoon round of the corries to check out the snow cover. We headed into Coire an t-Sneachda then up Jacobs Ladder onto the plateau and descended by Fiacaill Ridge to get good views into Coire an Lochan. Several of the Grade 1 gullies are still there, such as Jacob's Ladder, Aladdin's Couloir, Central Gully, Runnel and the Couloir are complete. Once on the plateau it's still possible to ski tour from Coire Domhain all the way to Ben MacDui.
