The Hybrid

Gary and I took advantage of a day off and some cracking weather on Cairngorm yesterday.
No wind!
We climbed The Hybrid on Mess of Pottage which gave reasonably sustained climbing finishing up the last pitch of The Message. The ledges are holding lots of unconsolidated snow which calls for lots of balancy moves and cleaning to get down to the older stuff.
We bumped into Mark Chadwick who had been over to Hells Lum and climbed the Chancer. Mark said Hells Lum was holding ice with a team on Salamander as well. Maybe Sticil Face or Scorpian could be in?
