Lean in ‘Lochain

Back across in the Northern Corries on Monday.  Very, very lean compared to 2 days ago.  The Mess of Pottage in ‘Sneachda looked pretty bare.  Gerry and I had intended on Ewen Buttress, or Milky Way but half way up pitch 1 I felt that frozen turf and bare rock was not appropriate on what is supposed to be a II/III traditional mixed route.  We moved together up The Couloir instead, before traversing Fiacaill Ridge and across to ‘Sneachda.

Other parties were on Ewen Buttress and something on Fiacaill Buttress.
