Zigzags Direct

A nice view this morning 
 Today I was out with the Irish crew again.  More snow overnight and a high wind forecast meant we had to pick a low option.  The Zigzag area gave this.  The route has transformed since we were there on Sunday.  Knee deep snow now covers the route to it's lowest level.

We climbed Zigzags Direct III which gave some nice climbing once I'd cleared the 3ft of snow off the routes.  It was hard going, but made for a full on winter day, which the lads loved.  Once up we decended the normal route.  Paul made up a couple of pitched to get to the chimney pitch of zigzags direct, whilst Colm and Dave climbed a mixed groove and then a flake pitch, before descending and climbing the same chimney pitch.

Despite the odd gust, it was a great day out.
More snow as the day ends

Dave coming back down for more
