20-02-13, Coire an t-Sneachda, Cairngorms - Winter Climbing
Approach slopes to the trident gullies.
A different day today, plenty of clag and 30mph winds, plenty of folk wandering around very lost in the coire! We went in search of something slightly harder than grade II and of the mixed variety. The Grooved Rib III,4 between The Runnel and Crotched Gully, very nice short route with plenty of ice and useful snow on the approach to the chimney right hand version. The freezing level was down today and rime has been forming on the rocks.
