As i have been told that winter climbing in this part of the world is a true weather story im a bit disappointed i must say...in a positiv way
Yesterday was a excellent day with blue Skye's and no wind. So a quick run up the Glen Coe. On the way down to Edinburgh felt like the best way to spend the day.

Today the goal was set on some mixed cragging up at Aonach Mor to get Andrei into the mixed scottish feeling. The routes are numerous so just pick and choose and since there are quite a few of 3* ones we went for the white shark as a warm up. A 110mts IV 4 with steep ice and steep slabby corners.

But that makes it easier for the second, no pro to fight to get out!
After struggling over the cornice,, which wasnt even exposed, time for a quick cup of tea and back down again. This time for...Typhoon An other 3* star grade IV 5, 130mts
Suddenly an other climber appears with a bit of wild looking
- how do you protect those cornice's?
