Fiacaill Fun

Day 4 of our big snowy winter lead climb course at Glenmore Lodge and the guys led themselves up the Fiacaill Ridge of Coire an t Sneachda taking all the difficulties direct. It was in great condition with enough firm snow on the ledges to help us out. Cold and windy walking up the ridge and the Coire is still very snowy. We walked around to .1141 to make our way down. Another Lovely day.
