Getting cooler

Had a 2 glove day in Coire Sneachda yesterday with Dave who,s over from Ireland for 5 days climbing and a 1 glove day today on Aonach Mor.
We climbed Fiacaill Couloir yesterday which was still holding onto some wet but good ice. It felt like everybody from the BMC International meet was following us up the climb. Lots of rock fall heard from the Red Gully area, stay clear!
We had a good dry day today on Aonach Mor climbing Left Twin with a direct central finish on plastic ice and Tunnel Vision which had OK ice but a bit kicked out. The buttresses are very thin, the turf was frozen so a dusting of snow could bring things back into condition. The temperature had dropped in the afternoon.
