Blustery Cairngorm

Here we are climbing in the Cairngorms. It's been incredibly windy and mild today, but amazingly, many of the gully climbs and several of the butress routes have retained their snow and ice. The turf is also quite frozen and if you can manage to stand up to the winds, climbing is actually OK. The winds were 100mph on the summit of Cairngorm toady and around 3 degrees C Tonight it due to drop to -5, so we cannot really complain about that!
