    Beautiful mountain, looks especially dramatic in winter snow. Went up the Central Gully in early winter with a group of friends from Stirling University. Deep snow - exciting without being...

    As Frank say's - beautiful but simple. Try the Central Gully in winter - a fine snow climb.

    Like Frank say's - Easy but beautiful. Try the Central Gully route in winter for a greater challenge.
