Lovely day - fantastic view across to Aonach Eagach.

adamarchie 30/Dec/14 Solo O/S

Neil had rubbed his Achilles raw the previous day, so our plan to do e.g. Twisting Gully fell through. I decided to get some exercise and head up though: first time on SCNL. Left the car at 11.30 amid hordes of self-stick toting tourists. Brutal ascent. The SCNL bowl though: wow. Powdery in the gully, though some neve underneath towards the top. Mostly grade I but the 6m crux section was tech 3 in these conditions. Couple of nice bridging moves! And stunning views back across Glencoe. Descent by evening light and more photos, plus a couple of glissades to speed things up. Back by head torch to the car at 5pm, then dinner at Happy Haggis before a kip in the car by Loch Morlich.

Nice plod up the start without ropes, then a quick belay set up before a brief, 2m, 'ice' pitch/desperate scramble leading to another quick ramble to the top. Completed on a cloudy, miserable, 2-metre-visibility, spin-drift covered dissapointment of a day, and worth every moment :)
