27-01-11, Lochnagar, Cairngorms - Winter Climbing

Today Matt, Kath and I had a great time at Lochnagar. Blue bird sky, no wind, hard rime ice and snow. We climbed the classic Eagle Ridge VI,6 (photo - right and below on the Tower). The route is great, five ling pitches, good helpful snow and ice where you want it, and good gear where it is needed. Other teams were out in Raeburn's Gully, Parallel Gully A. Conditions at Lochangar are great, hard snow pack, rime ice on buttresses, OK cornices. Some more good weather days forecast, so lets make the most of it!
