Craig and Mark got out and swam up the Zig Zags in Glen Coe...a fun 'go to' route in poor weather and it was poor that day with water gushing down the route after a turbo thaw.

Next up was a trip to the 'Gorms and finding something to climb. We got onto Original Summer Route on Alladin's Buttress and found soft unhelpful snow but we had fun and it actually felt like winter climbing for the first time this season.

On 30 December, Craig and Mark headed for a very wintery Cobbler and found lots of snow (comparatively) and some wld winds. We kept to lower ground on Chockstone Buttress area and climbed something at its far end. It felt a bit thin in the wrong places with plenty snow on the easier angled slopes. All in, a great wee climb which we thought went around III (4? maybe) with some interesting moves on steep steps.

Happy New Year to one and all...let's hope it's a good one.
