Today Pete and I headed into Coire an t’Sneachda. Pete had not done much in the way of winter climbing so we had hoped to go for Invernookie but the buttress over there looked pretty black. Instead we had a sociable start on The Slant and then I decided to have a wander around the ground between Hidden Chimney and Jacobs Left-Edge. The highlight was the wall shown in the picture – definitely not grade II. After topping out we did the first pitch of Goat Track Gully but rapped out as I believed that the conditions made it inappropriate… Thanks to Pete for giving me the OMM rucksack to test out this winter.
