White Magic

After the wash out with the weather last week that stop Matt and I heading North, he and Keith have looked out with the forecast this week. Their onslaught for the week has started with a visit to the Northern Corries today. Lots of snow, useful ice and much clearing saw them make short work of Magic Crack VII,7. I did this route 4 years or so ago by the original finish. The new guides describe the route following the summer line throughout. Matt said he thought the newer version added a bit more spice and a slightly harder pitch, but truely awesome climbing. I might have to do it again. I can't wait to hear what they do tomorrow.
