Wednesday 21st January

Ian, Steve and i were out yesterday in the Cairngorms.  We climbed Hidden Chimney Direct and The Haston Line on The Mess of Pottage.  We had originally intended to climb The Message but were unable to get to the base of the route due to instabilities in the snowpack on the last 10 metres of the approach.

By the time we started the second route, all aspects around The Mess of Pottage were becoming loaded and the top out of The Haston Line was begining to build a lot of unstable snow.

One very brave team climbed Jacob’s Couloir.  Probably very heavy loaded now after yesterdays winds.
