Cracks were pumpy fun. Roof was juggy fun. Slab was not so much fun. No gear for last 20ft of sugary snow and thin cruddy ice.

Led everything. Very poor gear as cracks coated in black ice. Thought the suggested VII, 7 in the new Scottish winter climbs guide was pretty fair in these conditions. corner and roof where steady. But the thin flat hooks to get the the belay were bold and tricky. Hard to see how it would come in properly without icing up the cracks.

plan A was carn etcachan, we got soaked on the walk in. decided to do a route in the 1st corrie instead. tried to find droidless but failed so want onto this. Dave climbed the first pitch, the crux (good lead by the way). I broke my adze on a torque seconding. After that motivation evaporated and we abbed off.

Early start, headtorches up first pitch, back for tea and cakes at the car park for 12.00 then scooted off home for an early evening. Good climbing for a wild weather day.
