I have just spent the last two days with the Falkirk High Tops Team. On monday we climbed Raeburns Route in Stob Coire Nan Lochain. The first pitch is becoming very thin but above this the route is in excellent condition. The route would be best started at the moment via NC Gully as long as the cornices above the gully are stable.
Today some of us climbed Pateys Route on Aladdins Buttress in the Northern Corries. The route was in good condition. The rest of the team climbed Doctors Choice. The first pitch of this route is in poor condition but the groove above does currently have enough ice. The corries were quiet today. A numbe rof routes from grade I to V 6 look in good condition at the moment.
