A continuing thaw  at most levels today  with high winds so Karl requested some outdoor rock climbing so that he coud try traditional climbing, placing his own gear as he climbed.  I suggested we drive to Burghead and  despite the high wind and rainy forecast it stayed dry for most of the day....we have  been very lucky with the weather, and after much chat and instruction climbed three routes with Karl getting the opportunity to lead them all... a very good day.

Surprisingly Ok today in the Cairngorms

Thaw conditions with strong SW winds, but it was ok. Climbing with Karl.

Some pitches were quite lean.

Quite sporting

The buttresses are stripped.
