25/1/12 Forty Thieves Area,Coire an t’Sneacdha

Graeme and Tam climbing ice at the start of the route today.

I have been back out today with the Falkirk High Tops Team.

There has been a massive thaw overnight. We walked into the corrie today with the intention of climbing anything that remained white. The best options were a number of lines in the Forty Thieves area. We climbed the buttress on a mixture of snow, ice, turf and rock taking in the steepest lines at about II/III.

There is a very limited number of routes to go at in the corrie at the moment. On the plus side, the turf remains frozen.
