The Buachaille

On the Buachaille Summit

We walked up in to Corie na Tulaich today to cover more skills as part of our journey to the top of the Buachaille. The snow was a lot firmer in places and gave us the chance to spend a bit of time looking at footwork. For us this meant kicking steps in all directions, shapes and sizes. We ventured into the world of the bucket seat, buried axe and even a bollard on our descent.
It will be great to get out and test these new skills later in the week.
Chris climbed Curved Ridge with his ckient today. He said that there was an excellent 30m ice pitch near the bottom, verglassed rock to start the ridge, then winter all the way. Zac climbed Dorsal Arete which he said still has loads of snow on it. He also said that the buttresses had rimed nicely.
