My friends and I went to the right, doing the grade I route. It was a bit cloudy when we summited so that awe inspiring views that we climbed to get weren't available. What we lost in not seeing the horizons, we gained in the added mystery of the climb. Slowly working your way up a snow covered mountain in fog is a thoroughly lonesome undertaking. Luckily, I was climbing with some great friends. There are two things I will remember about this trip. One, seeing the grade II direct and thinking 'forget that'. I've never been so sure that I wasn't going to try something in my life. I was under the impression that from grade I - IV would require much the same kit. I will certainly be buying some more screws and another ace though. My one DMM raptor would not have got me up that direct! The second is getting to the weather station on the Cairngorm summit (or near enough). Had I not had somebody telling me it was a weather station, I would have assumed it was an odd shaped tree. The wind and snow had done a fantastic job of covering the station over, obliterating any claim that humanity had to that mountain top. Once again I'm reminded at the utter power, and humanity's futility, in response to nature's power. You know, till we get back in doors to the central heating. Take that winter!

Moved together. Unfortunately had to back off this just before the crux pitch because the pair in front of us moved slowly up till then and then sat underneath the crux for 40 minutes while we froze. Once our hands and feet went numb we decided we weren't in a fit condition to climb any more and so headed back. They still hadn't started by the time we got off the ridge so it was right decision. We probably should have pushed in front of them as soon as they stopped but we were too polite and since this was our first winter climb of this type we didn't really know the rules. Live and learn.

Very wild on the ridge with poor visibility. Did it the easy way and avoided the best bits as we felt it wasn't safe with the wind. Snow very soft and thawing.

Second assent
ged3000 - 12/Dec/10

My first climb in the UK. Ascent was characterised by a crazy swirling wind which came from the crest and picked up speed as it came back up the slope. Decent was made difficult by deep snow with just enough crust to make each step a lot of work.

Andy Hewison - Solo - Mar/10 with Steve T

Definitely II/I as it's easy to escape to the easy ground to the right. Had to rescue a couple of walkers who'd got stuck. They decided to scramble the hard bit instead of following the easy path round to the side. We then pitched that bit, however it would have been soloable or ideal moving together ground. The rest was soloed. Lovely conditions, lots of snow and clear blue skies. Finished it off by walking round to Cairn Gorm and summiting that.
