Monday, 4 January 2010


Jo, Bethan and I headed West this morning to Aonach Mor. We climbed Smoking The White Owl on Sgurr Finnisg-Aig which is graded III/4 and has the feel of a real adventure. Conditions were ok with some sections still a bit thin including the top crux top pitch, other pitches lower down are holding great ice. We climbed the left hand finish which was quite chosy and thin in places, in hindsight, the right hand finish may be a better option. We finished the day catching the last gondola down at 4.15. A great day.
