John, Tam, Gayle and I were out today in Coire an t-Sneachda. Gayle and I climbed ‘Invernookie’ while John and Tam climbed ‘The Seam’. ‘Invernookie’ was in excellent condition with lots of useable snow ice and lightly rimed buttresses. The lads reported that ‘The Seam’ was also in good condition.
The visibility was very poor so I do not know how the other routes are looking. On the way out I could see the bottom of Aladdins Buttress which was black. The walk in and out to the Coire is very easy at the moment due to the firm snow.
