AC1 - 2013

Peter had an epic struggle with the cornice.

Intro to Lochnagar, lead pitches 2,4 and 6. Desperate time on run out snow and cornice well into the dark. Otherwise awesome.

Plan B as partner failed to materialise, no booby prize this though. Lovely snow ice on direct start and middle section, minimal powder in gully. Decided to go for right fork as it looked well iced and not so much powder as left fork. Cornice was a little bigger than I had hoped, took about 20mins to exit.

traversed in from left above 1st pitch

Somehow got both the hollow ice pitch at the bottom and digging a trench through the cornice whilst standing on an unnervingly soft snow-ridge. Good variation route though.

Great climb. lead the crux pitch.

Fantastic conditions for April, fat ice and good neve all the way except at the cornice. The iced up rocky step in the right fork provided some good entertainment. The cornice and the steep approach were unpleasant on soft snow. Great route and we seemed to be the only ones climbing in the coire!
