Today I went climbing with Gary in Coire an t-Sneachda in the Northern Corries. We headed to Fiaciall Buttress with knowledge that the approach slope is OK (from an avalanche point of view) and that some of the routes had been climbed recently and hence cleaned from some of the neve and ice. We climbed The Seam IV,5, which has a great, well protected last pitch. Photo - right, Gary finishing the difficulties on the last pitch. The rest of the corrie is completely buried under snow, however Fingers Ridge, Fluted Buttress Direct had rock showing through the white!
