A busy start to winter

We had a good dump of snow at the end of November which has given the Cairngorms a great base for the rest of the season. Conditions are great and hopefully they will continue.
A few pictures above from some recent climbing work. Marc and Paul had a week of progressive
mountaineering, leading their first winter route, Central Gully on day 5.
Dave Madden returned from Ireland at the weekend for a couple of days climbing which he missed out on 2 years ago when i fell ill with an appendicitis. We climbed Sidewinder in Lochain and Fluted Buttress Direct which again are in great early season nick. Looks like its going colder again this week, more snow please.
