SCNL Summit Buttress Ordinary Route from C Coid on Vimeo.
Winter has arrived at last (for weekend warriors anyway!). Stunning stellar morning with alpenglow over the early hills...things were looking good - hopefully the cold snap had made for great conditions.
|A sunny Creish|
|The infamous Hurt Lochan|
|P1 Scabbard Chimney - thin and difficult|
|P1 Ordinary Route|
|Mark coming up to p1 belay|
|Mark heading up p3 - V variant finish??|
Despite the disappointment of Scabbard 'Chim-no', this turned in to a 5* day with super weather and a fine new route, which merited its grade and 1*, maybe a 2* route in our minds.
About the coffee cup...really, you wouldn't want to know!
