Winter climbing

Matt climbing in the Northern Corries again today . The snow was a bit moist with the recent warming and the approach path is relatively easy going now although some ice patches remain underfoot. On the climbs: ice remains good, turf frozen and cracks in the rock are quite clear so cams work and protection is easy to find! Winds were quite gusty today stinging ones bare skin. Ace climbing , with tons of snow left. Spoke to some skiers and boarders on the way down and they said that on-piste skiing at Cairngorm Mountain was still very good although they would do with some more snow nearer the lower car park.
