Good day out

Today I managed to get out for the first time this season. We (Greg, Neil and Myself) went into a cold, white and windy Lochain. We climbed Fallout corner, which was in excellent condition. There was ice in the cracks, but this was generally ok to clean out for gear. There were 2 other teams in the corrie, 1 on weatern route and the other on sidewinder. The snow had firmed up a little so the approach was pretty easy going.

Martin and Glenn went into Ben Udlaidh and climbed South Gully of Black Wall. Martin said the first pitch was thin and the second took good screws. Other teams were on Quartzvien Scoop and Peter Pan Direct. The road down the glen was extremely icy so take care.
