Pamela & I were out on Beinn Dearg (Ullapool) today. Something of a slog getting in and out with fresh snow between 8″ and waist deep above the treeline. We climbed a possible newÃÂ route starting at a slot/gully about 100m right of Whatawaytospendeaster at about 170m & II/III. It gave a couple of nice pitches followed by some relatively easy grouind to the ridge. Turf was well frozen where exposed, but soft where burried and the ice was variable. A lot of cleaning was required and snow flurries and southerly winds were depositing powder on to north facing slopes. Now relaxing with a great meal and a beer in front of the fire at the Aultguish.
