Fiacaill of Corie An T-Snechda

An interesting day today in the snow laden Cairngorms. So, Jeff and I had a good mountaineering day by climbing the Fiacaill ridge by its most technical route which is an interesting grade 2. We then abseiled down Jacobs as there had been some big groups climbing it earlier in the day and had knocked off any suspect soft snow. There is lots of wind slab about and the avalanche forecast was true to form. Temperatures seemed to raise a little this afternoon but it's not for long. Climbs are in great condition but the depth of snow and iced up cracks make progress slow and climbs difficult to protect.
