The Braeriach Corries expedition

Glen was interested in some WML navigation coaching and a winter rope work refresher on grade 1 ground. As Talisman takes you further and higher, I suggested we take a trip into Braeriach's Garbh Choirie!
I knew from our recent trips on the Ben MacDui plateau that Braeriach still had full winter cover in the the easier gully lines!!!!
I have to say it was an excellent choice and we had an absolutely fantastic two day expedition on Braeriach with truly alpine conditions.
This gave us a chance to explore some of the totally unique areas that are rarely ever visited due to the effort and their remoteness on our navigation legs and the to climb Great Gully in the wild, remote and truly alpine Garbh Choire Mor.
The rarely visited glaciated hanging coire is the site of the UK's longest lasting semi-permanent snow fields with it's unique rare arctic alpine fauna and flora and can be seen in the HD video below.

The HD YouTube climbing video is now at http://youtu.be/AbXYan_LmmA
Even more photos are on the Talisman Mountaineering Facebook page here including the Capercaillie! Sadly the Capercaillie we've met several times defending it's area on the walk in has been killed by a dog.
