Wednesday 7th January (Drumochter)

Wafer MeYesterday (6/1/09) Pamela and I headed into Creag Dhubh, Geal-Charn Drumochter to confirm the location of a route we climbed in December and to see if there was any ice. We had an excellent day climbing Wafer Me in three short pitches. The 1st pitch required a little delicacy with water running behind cauliflower and chandelier ice, the 2nd and 3rd pitches were on good solid ice.

Turf was frozen hard, some of the ice routes were well formed and there was a light dusting of snow. As we walked out over the ridge it was snowing at height on a NW wind, this was falling as rain below about 600m.
