For the past two days I have been in the Cairngorms with the Falkirk High Tops Team. I have been climbing with John Bell and Paul. John Jackson, Doug and Tam climbed together as a team

Yesterday, the weather was wild. We still managed to get a route done though in Coire an Lochain. Both teams climbed Milky Way on well frozen turf and some snow ice. Of note, is a pocket of windslab underneath this area of the crag which requires care.

Today we all visited Creagan Coire Cha-no and climbed Anvil Gully. We abseiled down the route and climbed back out again as the snow in Recovery Gully looked very suspect. The turf low down on the route was a bit soft but excellent higher up the route and on all the difficult moves.
