Back up here due to avalanche risk elsewhere! Mostly snowed up rock as far as I could tell. Some more solid snow/neve in sections, but mostly a bit too powdery to rely on. Walked up the ridge due to avalanche risk in the corrie. Completed in 5 short pitches; pitching definitely unnecessary for some sections but it was good practice! Susan led pitches 1, 2, 5. I led 3, 4.

My friends and I went to the right, doing the grade I route. It was a bit cloudy when we summited so that awe inspiring views that we climbed to get weren't available. What we lost in not seeing the horizons, we gained in the added mystery of the climb. Slowly working your way up a snow covered mountain in fog is a thoroughly lonesome undertaking. Luckily, I was climbing with some great friends. There are two things I will remember about this trip. One, seeing the grade II direct and thinking 'forget that'. I've never been so sure that I wasn't going to try something in my life. I was under the impression that from grade I - IV would require much the same kit. I will certainly be buying some more screws and another ace though. My one DMM raptor would not have got me up that direct! The second is getting to the weather station on the Cairngorm summit (or near enough). Had I not had somebody telling me it was a weather station, I would have assumed it was an odd shaped tree. The wind and snow had done a fantastic job of covering the station over, obliterating any claim that humanity had to that mountain top. Once again I'm reminded at the utter power, and humanity's futility, in response to nature's power. You know, till we get back in doors to the central heating. Take that winter!

Northern corries avalanching, so picked as a safe option. Led Colin and Vincent up the route while Tom soloed below. Thin conditions gave an insecure crux. Turned back just short of the plateau to avoid the full force of the gales. First route in 18 months.

Moved together. Unfortunately had to back off this just before the crux pitch because the pair in front of us moved slowly up till then and then sat underneath the crux for 40 minutes while we froze. Once our hands and feet went numb we decided we weren't in a fit condition to climb any more and so headed back. They still hadn't started by the time we got off the ridge so it was right decision. We probably should have pushed in front of them as soon as they stopped but we were too polite and since this was our first winter climb of this type we didn't really know the rules. Live and learn.

Definitely II/I as it's easy to escape to the easy ground to the right. Had to rescue a couple of walkers who'd got stuck. They decided to scramble the hard bit instead of following the easy path round to the side. We then pitched that bit, however it would have been soloable or ideal moving together ground. The rest was soloed. Lovely conditions, lots of snow and clear blue skies. Finished it off by walking round to Cairn Gorm and summiting that.

Amazing route despite the high winds. Best climbing is done by keeping to the left line.

Stunning day. We were going to drop down into the coire afterwards to do some gullies, but it was all very powdery, and on such a lovely day, meant sense to stay high and enjoy it. So from the top of the ridge we carried on in a big circular walk taking in Ben Macdui. Great day out.

got forced off the vent and headed round for the ridge, short roped up the interesting section then battled the wind, driving snow and drifts to get back and find the car park storm bound!

Traversed to the ridge after getting sluf aved in lochain, simul roped the hard bit then decended the ridge linking onto the snec path. Very hard walk out chest deep powder in places and nasty wind flattening you every now and again.

Soft snow cover gave no grip for ice-axe. Icy rocks. Scramble with crampons. Steve J led final pitch with rope. High wind, worse on top.

A nice start to the day, there was no snow on the ridge to tax us and it was no more than a summer scramble, but nice none the less.

By-passed the crux on the ridge as I didnt have climbing axes, but this involved a very exposed and very hairy traverse on a steep snow slope!
