The MessageThe first taste of snow in November and a few excited phone calles later, we are heading in to the Northern Corries to see what was happening. Turf... not frozen, but there was plenty of snow and the buttresses were white with rhyme ice so we picked one of a few select routes that we felt were inkeeping with the ethics. The message, a route which was on both our hit lists for this coming winter so we were chuffed to start the season with this classic.
Andy bridging up the classic corner pitch.
A momentary break in the clag on our way down.
For Josh his first winter route, a much cheerier finish than our first outing which sadly involved a rescue of a fallen climber outside of our party.
