Fiacaill Couloir

A very snowy Fiacaill Couloir

Yesterday was my last day with Peter, Paul and Dave, so we opted to have an experience and grab a route.  We pushed through the wind to find shelter on a busy Fiacaill Buttress, which was in great condition.  The Couloir was quiet when we went up, after a team had just retreated due to a big fall.  All ok though.  All the guys did really well, despite a little moaning and throwing of toys at the back.  We avoided the Goat Track, which was receiving a fair bit of new wind blown snow, and journeyed around the corie to 1141m and down the ridge.  Good views and manageable wind made for a great last day.
