Coire an t-Sneachda 25-01-14

Great conditions again in the Cairngorms today… we headed into Coire an t-Sneachda for Day 1 of an Intro to Winter Climbing Course with Roger and climbed Patey’s Route IV/5 and Doctors Choice IV/4, both brilliant routes!

Better again today in the East and climbing conditions are great, some routes very buried though and gear is hard won if not cleared already, as well as what we climbed, Original Route, Invernookie and The Seam all had ascents.

Plenty of loose, and in places slabby snow about. We descended Aladdin’s Couloir without any problem though…
