My mate could not get up the hill from his village this morning so I was left to go out on my own. To prepare for various things I decided to solo an easy buttress route on the Meall Gorm crags above the Bealach na Ba road. Lucky for me I managed to drive as far as the Sword of Gideon carpark and after the route my descent took me straight back there as well. Way Out II provided a nice short route before the weather came in. Some soft snow and unfrozen turf but a great wee chimney pitch near the top made up for this!
