Just about wintery on Monday, but the sun was on the top tier as we finished.

West Chimney start was much harder than anticipated. Crux was the last pitch before the final tier - fantastic, but not tech 4 by any stretch. Horrific descent.

Skipped the sandstone tier. Some ambiguity about route-finding on middle tier, no ambiguity about quality of last pitch. Superb route.

Not really "full Scottish conditions" but a grand day out. Two ice pitches up the West/Central gully to get to the start of the quartzite tier, followed by some verglassed rock climbing and it finally became a bit more wintery for the upper tier.

Little ice but lots of powder. Best mountain day yet!
