27th January

I had a big day out today on Lochnagar with Ian and Steve.  We climbed Shaddow Buttress A.  This is a three star classic with varied climbing and a fine technical crux.  The route probably warrants III 5 in normal conditions.  The first two pitches to the overhangs were a bit wet but after this the turf and snow were both good.  From the crux onward the crag is heavily rimed so gear is not very obvious.

Other teams were on routes such as Central Buttress and Eagle Ridge.  Some routes had very scary looking cornices hanging over them.
