Tuesday 25th November

I was out in Coire an t-Sneachda today with Patryck and Pamela having fun on The Grooved Rib. The first pitch went OK, although a fair bit of cleaning was required and any buried turf was not frozen. Patryck was stopped on the 2nd pitch (via the right hand groove option) by soft turf and we abbed back down as time was getting on and the warm weather had started to arrive. 

At the start of the day exposed turf was frozen, the rock well rimed and any pockets of fresh snow were unconsolidated. However, as we left the coire things had warmed such that the buttress were stripping of rime.
