Mountaineering in the Cairngorms

Today I was out with Sam and Josh. Sam led us on a mountaineering route up and down the inner/'hidden' coire right (west of) of the Fiacaill of Coire an t  Sneachda before we went round the rim of that coire and down via windy col which as usual lived up to its name- Sam chopped the cornice down and it blew back up again!
