Cairngorm Day

An interesting day today with slightly warmer temperatures and a wind which gusted to 60 mph on Cairngorm summit. It was full Scottish winter climbing conditions and these photos are of Jon climbing on Invernookie which is a classic two star grade III,4 . Invernookie was first climbed in winter by Kenny Spence and John Porteous on the 4th January 1969. It's on the Fiacaill buttress of Coire an t-Snechda.

Hi Sandy,

It was good to meet you and John in the Corrie on Sunday. We ended up straying onto Broken Fingers III,4 which looked a a good bit thinner than Invernookie (which also thought about).

Good to see that you both also got to enjoy the Scottish weather. Maybe see you in the Glen sometime!.
