24-01-13, Coire an t-Sneachda - Winter Mountaineering

Starting Fiaciall Coire an t-Sneachda.
More mountaineering today. Crisp, cold southerly breeze, frozen ground rime ice and solid neve on East facing slopes and on the plateau  We ascended the Fiaciall Coire an t-Sneachda, some solo some roped pitches, there were plenty of other teams on the buttress below. Approaches to Mess of Pottage looked very loaded but there were many scoured areas  beneath Aladdin and Fluted Buttress.
