The Genie followed by Pygmy ridge a great link up and what awesome condition they were in! I dont think we could claim technical 7 for the Genie when it had ice and neve to hit into rather than a sketchy lay away, I might add I did test the lay away up the corner but couldnt resist the neve. It did howl all day so on topping out we escaped quickly down Aladdins couloir, back at the car park for 3pm. Great day out and good decisions made!
Me checking out the crux, its looking good!
I did say it was windy and snowy!?
Since being over on the west coast alot, I had forgotten what the cairngorms were like... a brilliant insitu belay just where I wanted it.
