Fluted Buttress Direct 18/12/09

Today James, my Dad and I had a good day in Sneachda. We did Broken Gully Left hand Start III/4 which had good ice coverage on the last pitch. We then came back down and did Fluted Buttress Direct IV/5 which was a really good route with some interesting climbing on the lower section in the chimney which James led. The second pitch had a few tricky mixed steps but where well protected and short lived. This route well deserves the three stars that it is given in the guide.
