25-01-15, Coire an t-Sneachda, Cairngorms - Winter Climbing
I have been working in the Cairngorms with students on a MCofS University students winter climbing course. Saturday was windy, but cold, and fairly quiet in the coire. We climbed Hidden Chimney Direct, as usual in fun climbable condition. Today the freezing level was well above the summits, no rain, but very windy, the buttresses are black and the snow moist!
