Done by thousands of people but I can't find it described on UKC so i thought I would...

The small ribs of rock exposed on the East side of Fiacaill Coire an t'Sneachta (On your right as you walk in to the Coire); accessed by walking/scrambling up the scree slope. A nice approach and warm up to Fiaciall Ridge. Can easily be soloed or have easy belays set up with just a sling (plenty of useful rocks!)

Graded here as 2, assuming you stick to the middle'ish of the right-hand rib, taking the most difficult line wherever possible. Plenty of easier options to the left and right which are accessible to entire length of the route if things are little above your grade.

Lead the first pitch, felt like a 3. Easy climbing but the conditions felt hard as the winds were around 50 - 60 miles per hour.

Started not very snowy, but fresh snow and spindrift changed all that. Haven't got the hang of placing crampon points and axes yet it seems.
