Winter climbing in the Cairngorms

Met up with Andy Nisbet and Susan Jensen this morning at the Cairngorm Mountain car park. We carried  in a  rack of gear and ropes with the intention of exploring a new unrecorded winter climb. We did not expect the conditions to be so fine and ended up soloing two nice climbing routes. It was a great day with good pals. Windy and it felt chilly and the turf was frozen enough to be useful! Below is a short video showing conditions on Coire An Lochan today 26 December 2016.
