John and I went back up to Aonach Mor hoping to get stuck into a trickier mixed climb today. Unfortunately, the light rime from yesterday had gone and all the buttresses are now black. Plan B meant we looked at options for accessing climbs when the avalanche risk is high. We also looked at the routes that are good to work on as John has an assessment the season.
We climbed a thin and interesting Roaring Forties IV'5**, which felt quite nippy and bold. A few other folks were on the usual gullies and ice lines. Plenty of folks on the Ben today, but one pair showed interesting judgement and dry tooled Gargoyle Wall Ihave been told.
