Fluted Buttress Direct

Today Mark and I went back into Sneachda thinking we were trying to beat the weather, we were wrong. It stayed nice all day with the freezing level staying lower than expected as well. Today the aim was to challenge Mark and make him put so of him rock climbing movement skills into winter climbing. Fluted Buttress did this perfectly. The first pitch was black, but there was a good amount of ice in the runnel to the left, so we headed up there. After that we climbed good ice all the wat to the top.

Hi Adam

Tim here (from the skye trip a while back).
Thought I heard you (and your name) over the corrie today. Took Lorna up the Twin Ribs area to mess about with some easy climbing, then over the Fiacail Ridge which she enjoyed! Couldn't see your car/van but you were probably gone!
Hope to do the Ledge and No4 or CMD next week if it's still in good nick?

Hope you got some food today:)
