I have finally shaken of the flu and other bugs that have plagued me so far this winter, to actually go climbing. Yesterday Greg and I headed up into Lochan and climbed War and Peace. It was an exciting choice as a first route of the season, but worked out well. Conditions(extremely icy cracks), both helped and made climbing very bold at times. The route took in some impressive and strenuous ground. There were other times on Sidewinder, Milky Way and a time making swift work of Ventricle (turns out Ian Parnell and Rich Cross).
Today we went into Sneachda and climbed Watchacha on Mess of potage Again conditions made the climbing extremely bold at times. This route had everything, bold slabby climbing to steep strenuous moves through the crack in the headwall. Over all a great 2 days.
