Winter ice-climbing- Scotland
Ice on the windscreen of our cars this morning in Newtonmore and climbing conditions in the Cairngorms are amazingly fine. Here are Max and Ross on Fiacaill Couloir which had lots of ice to climb and is generally in excellent condition. The recent melt freeze has striped some of the steeper buttress routes and this has made it easier to place runners. There remains tons of snow, and skiing on Cairngorm Mountain looks fantastic.
