Topic - UKC conditions report - Northern Cairngorms 9th March 2014

ian stewart - on 09 Mar 2014
I was out for a quick ski this morning. The thaw has started to reveal crags again, with lots of teams out on Aladdins Buttress and Fiacaille buttress. Mess of pottage is looking recognisable, but still has a large cornice above. Fluted buttress to Goat track gully now has a few climbable routes.

Large word of warning! These newly exposed routes will probably contain a fair amount of loose rock and rotten ice, as well as melting cornices that will present a significant hazard until we get a good freeze, not due until next friday.
