Aonach Mor

After our day on the Ben yesterday, we opted for the easier approach that Aonach Mor offers. Again we all had 1 client each, so the opportunity for bagging a few routes was high. To beat the ques at the top of easy gully Kenny and I abseiled down Left Twin with our clients. This paid off, as the first teams reached the bottom of the route as James was seconding the second pitch. Kenny climbed Siamese Twin with Jamie. James and I went back down easy gully and then climbed Typhoon IV,4. This is a bit mixed at the moment and pushing tech 5ish. Kenny had climbed Tunnel Vision. We met up again at the bottom of easy gully. James and I climbed the Web II/III, and Kenny and Jamie climbed Spider Rib II.

Campbell and Richard climbed Left Twin then went down to the Nid to revisit some snow anchors. Rodger and Callum climbed Left Twin as well, and also Tunnel Vision.

Ice was great to climb, but like the Ben, not the best for screws. There was snow being blown in all day on a Westerly, but not to strong a wind.

Adam thanks to you and your team for a great couple of days out. Learned loads, refreshed some rusty skills, climbed some great routes and left psyched for some more winter action.
