Wednesday 28th January

I have been out in the Cairngorms the last two days.  On monday i climbed Nathrach Dubh on Carn Etchachan with Greg ‘Bozza’ Boswell.  Photos can be seen on his site.  The approach along The Great Terrace required care.  The route was very white with some unhelpful snow ice in the top chimney which was hiding all the hooks and gear but only occasionally holding body weight.  The rest of the route gave fine sustained climbing.

Hells Lum looked in good condtion.  As noted in the last report Martin and Adam climbed The Chancer.  We heard either a sizeable rock or ice fall from Stag Rocks.

Yesterday i headed into the Northern Corries and climbed Hidden Chimney with Paul and Andy from the Falkirk High Tops Team.  The route was in excellent condition but the crag was very busy.  Other routes that teams were on or got climbed included, Jacobs Edge, The Honeypot, The Hybrid, Hidden Chimney Direct, Alladins Mirror Direct, The Haston Line, Jacobs Ladder and Salvation.
