First Winter Route's of the Season

Jamie Bankhead on Hidden Chimney Direct (IV,5)

Jamie Bankhead on Spiral Gully (II)

Aladdin's and Fluted Buttresses
I finally used the crampons and axes today, ever since the snow arrived I have been looking forward to doing some routes. The decision was made to head over to the Cairngorms. Jamie had his eye on Fluted Buttress Direct, however on arrival at the bottom of the pitch we found the snow wasn't in the best condition. We traversed over and soloed Spiral Gully (II) in search of something better.

We found Hidden Chimney Direct (IV,5) which wasn't in the best of nick either but at least it was climbable.
