Thursday 6th January Coup De Grace

Andy Nelson leading the crux of Coup De Grace
Andy Townsend leading a direct finish to Coup De Grace

Today i was out on Beinn an Dothaidh with Andy Townsend and Andy Nelson. We climbed Coup De Grace. The route was in excellent condition. The turf was very well frozen (I could have done with some sharper picks). Andy Townsend led a direct finish rather than doing the easier pitch 4. This climbed a very steep crack above the belay of pitch 3 and then two steep bulges.

The mixed climbing on the other routes looked in good condition also. There appeared to be a team on The Skraeling. The ice falls of Taxus are currently not visible due to the large volume of new snow.
