Pamela and I were out today in Coire an t-Sneachda and climbed Grooved Rib with the right hand finish. An interesting route with two good top pitches on a glorious sunny day.
The snow is firming up and there’s ice forming. Gear placements still needed some digging to find on this angle of route, although a number of the steeper buttresses are starting to strip. Turf is well frozen.
Plenty of teams in the coire with routes climbed on the Mess of Pottage (Adam and Greg climbing Wachacha), Pygmy Ridge, The Runnel, Crotched Gully, Red Gully and over on the the Fiacaill Buttress.
