Me leading second pitch.
Today Euan and I did The Hoarmaster in Corie An Lochain. The conditions were very wintery and there was a lot of build up on the route which made the climbing conditions hard. But despite the heavy build up, Euan put on a good show when he cruised the first (crux) pitch of the route eventhough the wind was exploading the rime into his face. I led the second pitch, which was also good, although the chimney section didn’t stop dumping snow on my head. I couldn’t see until I had pulled free and moved out onto the last slab, where the build up wasn’t too bad, but the climbing remained sustained. Regardless of the stormy conditions we both had a good day out and were pleased with the route we had done.
