The Ciste crag was buried in snow as expected and always needs a lot of care as it is VERY loose. The extreme right hand side offers some short climbing lines but most things are much harder than they appear from below. The 2 Kierans led a 2 pitch line at about II getting lots of practise organising themselves, placing gear, managing stances and clearing huge amounts of snow all whilst well bundled up for winter.
1 flock of about 15 ptarmigan observed today- the most I've seen in one place at one time and also 2 white hares.
Look out- coming through!
That was harder than it looked:-)
Come on up!
On the lead
In the groove
Sam and team on the deceptively easy looking slab- its desperate
Kirk and team just 40m below us... yes... really... they are there!
