20-01-10, Sgorr Ruadh, Torridon

With the freezing level forecast to be considerably lower today we had a punt and tried to go climbing on Sgorr Ruadh, which relies on cold weather for the mixed turfy lines. The walk was long but fairly mellow, and the buttress, with even less snow than Beinn Eighe yesterday. Freezing level was at about 600m, well below the crag. However we couldn't justify doing any winter climbing on the crag as the rock wasn't white or verglassed, more like v.v.cold summer rock climbing.
