Back to work and winter

Rog, Cath and I had a great day on Ledge Route in December so they asked if I had any availability this week since they were coming back to Scotland and fancied something 'exciting'. Looking at the weather forecast I decided that Curved Ridge might make for a good day out and so it was. The route was well buried under snow but both in the basin at the top and in Coire na Tullaich on descent there was little evidence of worrying windslab. Dan was following us up the route with his own party and Olly was working with a large party of students at the lip of the Coire. On descent we experienced little wind but there was an obvious rise in temperature.
