Happy New Year ……. and by the way where’s winter?

Had a fine day climbing in the Cairngorms, Corrie Sneachda. Winter climbing, but it was pretty marginal. Some mixed routes need a build up of snow and / or ice, others don’t, in fact they benefit from being bare so the hook holds can be found. That to me is not very sporting! Nevertheless today was a nice day in the hills with good company, sunshine and a Brocken Spectre. The Mountain Cafe in Aviemore was full mind 😦
