04-02-14, Coire an t-Sneachda, Cairngorms - Winter Mountaineering

 Today there was a slight lull in the winds, only the 45mph! Anyway a day to get something done up high. Coire an t-Sneachda, some grade I+ ground up the Twin Ribs onto the Fiaciall Coire an t-Sneachda then over the Fiaciall Ridge. Still windy on the summits and poor visibility. Cornices in general are massive, lots of think rime ice plastering everything, plenty of wind slab about although there was some scoured ground near Fiaciall Buttress. We were joined by many people on the ridge, and there were a few climbers out on the Fiaciall Buttress itself and approaching Aladdin's Buttress.
