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.

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.

Stunning day. We were going to drop down into the coire afterwards to do some gullies, but it was all very powdery, and on such a lovely day, meant sense to stay high and enjoy it. So from the top of the ridge we carried on in a big circular walk taking in Ben Macdui. Great day out.

got forced off the vent and headed round for the ridge, short roped up the interesting section then battled the wind, driving snow and drifts to get back and find the car park storm bound!
