We Really Wanna See Those Fingers!

I am over in the Cairngorms for a couple of days staying in Inverness with the MRT. So making use of the horrible weather we, my dad Steve, Alasdair Drummond and I headed into Coire An t-Sneachda to look at the a classic called Fingers Ridge (IV,4****). The visibility was really poor but luckily I bumped into Bill Strachan who was able to point us in the right direction for the start of the route.
As you climb higher the route gets better and more difficult but also offers lots of opportunities for good gear making the experience a really pleasant one, that is apart from the icy winds and zero temperature's.

Peeping through the fingers

When ice meets face

Which way is up?
