Today Euan and I ventured up into Coire an Lochan for some winter mixed action. To our surprise the climbing conditions where amazing with the buttresses where fully rimed up and the small amount of turf on our route was frozen solid. We did the route ”Deep Throat” V/6, which is a good route following a groove over 3 roofs and finishes up a wide crack. The wind was really strong today but our moral was high as we had been looking forward to some mixed climbing for a while now. It was a good day and I’m back out tomorrow so hopefully it will be another.
On Tue the 3rd Damo and I where getting stuck into the routes in the cave at Burnam (Dunkeld). We were doing Fast and Furious, it was Damiens first time on the route and he was making short work of the powerful moves. It was good to get back on the steep routes as im planning to do some tricky routes out in the Alps next year.
