Hurricane Arete

I was on Aonach Mor today with Matt Stygall and Matt Smith. We climbed Hurricane Arete which was in good condition. The first pitch was an excellent thin ice climb over some steep slabs with little gear. The crux had some amazing climbing through an overhang, followed by very technical traverse through some steep ground. A easy pitch leads to the top. There were a number of teams in Left Twin, this probably due to the massive cornices at the tops of most routes.
