14-01-14, Coire an t-Sneachda, Cairngorms - Winter Climbing
Top difficulties of Patey's Route.
Final day 3 of private guided climbs in the Cairngorms. Another fine weather day, light winds, blue skies, cold temperatures. We climbed Patey's route, in cracking condition, not guidebook grade IV,5 more like III, a couple of steeper steeps, no overhangs or scratching about! A spike in the temperature with precipitation forecast for tomorrow, this won't be pleasant if your out in it, but we could do with it to get rid of some of the fluff.
