Remyveness 9 Feb AltLd Very deep powder and 70+mph winds according to mwis. Led the main pitch of Haston line, Sam did a connecting pitch which brought us a a step (4/5 ish) corner which I then led, thought this could have been messaged but looking at pictures possibly not. Either way a fun day and pleased to have managed something on a day when most seemed to be abbing off.

gtaylor997 3 Jan AltLd O/S Really fun line, climbed with Jule and Dan. Lead up to the bottom of the groove, a simple but long pitch, made longer by the near epic after a crampon caught on a piece of gear mid-way through a fairly irreversible mantle! Dan got his first mixed lead up the groove, a fantastic pitch with some really nice climbing. Blasted up the last pitch to meet Piers and a stunning temp inversion + sunset belay at the top. Best mountain view ever?

RobScotland 12 Jan, 2008 AltLd O/S Very little ice about and snow fairly soft. Sounds like this route doesn't usually build up a lot of ice anyway. First crux move is easier than second - both require careful dry tooling. Tricams useful on slightly flared cracks. All rock gear - no ice gear placed.Enjoyable. Snowcover on the Cairngorm plateau very windblown so not ideal for ski tourers.
