04-03-13, Aonach Beag, West Highlands - Winter Climbing

Steep Crux pitch Royal Pardon.
Thanks for the photo Garry.
Got the early gondola up Aonach Mor today, Garry, Gaz and I walked over to Aonach Beag and climbed Royal Pardon. An absolute great route, 4 pitches of good ice climbing, the second of which was quite steep. The ice was great to climb today chewy and took screws well. Stand and Deliver looked steep and a little narrow in the middle but would be climbable.

Pitch 4 still some interest - great route.
Stand and Deliver.
Moody Ben Nevis head held high!
