Cairngorm Turbo Thaw
I was back into Sneachda today with Rob and Will. the aim of the day was to climb a tricky mixed climb to push their skills on. We had an early start to try and get a route done before the thaw hit. The chosen route Droidless VI,6** looked outstanding as we walked in, so we were quickly on it. We managed to get most of the way up before the Turbo Thaw stripped the route around us. This meant that the final pitch was super soggy, but still had icy cracks and frozen turf. Back down and in the cafe by midday, with little chance of any mixed climbing for the rest of the week.
