Mark, Marie and I had a quick hit over East today, we went to the very accessible Coire an t’Sneachda and climbed an icy Patey’s Route (IV,5). I’ve only climbed this route once before in very rocky conditions, its much more fun full of ice! Another huge change in weather from yesterday as there wasn’t a breath of wind, we were even treated to blue skies and endless views. Really annoyingly I forgot my camera, so I will try and grab some pictures from Mark and Marie and update the blog this evening.
