A day saved

I'd arranged to do point 5 with Alan Kimber, and with snow and wind due to arrive around noon, we met at the car park at 0500. Unfortunately, the weather arrived early, so we called it off, not wanting to deal with either a) spindrift funnelling down the gully, or b) possible avalanches. So I was back home by 7am! With a spare day, i went to explore a waterfall that is marked on the map up the glen at Garve Bridge. It's not in the guidebook, and was well frozen, but is unfortunately only about 8ft high!

I consoled myself with exploring Guisachan Falls (III) 30m, which is best approached from downstream by the right bank. Again, it was well frozen and gave a good solo.
