If you are considering a visit this week, there is a lot of ice but it needs a good solid freeze. There is also a lot of powder snow which has buried often unfrozen turf, plus the rock cracks are full of crudy ice - conditions are challenging but could pretty quickly turn superb or as quickly melt away. Such are the joys of Scottish winter climbing.
A continuous line of ice down The Giant waiting for a good freeze.
The line of Vapourizer again unclimbable on Saturday. Vertgo wall takes the left to right diagonal forming an X with Vapourizer.
A nice view of the 'mush icicle and tied off stubie belay on our final pitch.
Trying to master the 'art of pulling on axes without pulling' - I believe the true line of Vertigo Wall is some way to my left.
Two winter beauties.
