Monday 3rd December

Yesterday Paul climbed Iron Butterfly.  Today Mark and Martin climbed Sidewinder in the Northern Corries and other teams were on Fallout Corner, Savage Slit and Prore.

Damien and i climbed Western Slant.  We found this to be an excellent and varied route.  The first pitch was a traverse on water ice bulges and a mixed chimney.  The second pitch was a turfy traverse.  At this point the route joins Western Route.  The third pitch gave excellent snow ice climbing and Damien lead the fourth pitch which was a mixed corner of about IV 5.

It was whiteout on the plateau today.  It began snowing heavily as we left the Cairngorm car park.
