simonsnake77 3 Feb 2nd β First ever Scottish winter climb, set off from the van in horizontal rain which quickly turned to expectedly preferred stinging hail then snow. Long slow walk in with a lot of deep snow. Fantastic mixed climb with some tricky sections. Loved the iced axes which our guide reliably informed me were the same as those used by Lara Croft which helped me feel epic. Descent was hard going in deep snow with lots of falling with style, finally made it back to the van after being out for 10hrs. More tomorrow!
