Lots of Snow

There has been a lot of snow fall over night, and it has continued through the day. Greg and I headed for the Fiacaill Buttress today. We were going to have a look at Men in Black. I started up the crux pitch, but soon realised I was not going to be able to clear the ice out of the crack, could not use the ice or protect the route. Not feeling overly brave, I climbed the appropriately named Escapologist. Due to all the ice that is around the climbing was pretty straight forward, but there was very little protection. We came back down and then climbed a rarely in ice route called Straight to Jail. We had no ice screws again as they where still in edinburgh, but Greg climbed the pitch well without them.
