Craig and Mark have had a good couple of weeks climbing...
Raeburn’s Ordinary Route Hand (IV 4) is far from ordinary and is a favourite of ours, we went left from the second belay to make the route even better.
Curved Ridge (III 3) in good but powder snow cover.
Shelf Route (IV 6) (bailed) due to the amount of snow and lack of good placements en-route.
Chockstone Gully (II) suited the high winds and avalanche forecast being low down on the Cobbler.
Original Summer (IV 6) Cairngorms, Dan came along to make it a rather sociable day out.
McLay’s Crack (III 4) on the Cobbler got another visit on a better than forecast day that happened to be Mark's Birthday so Craig carried the rack in and out!
Crowberry Gully (IV 4) in fat easy conditions with views to America from the top.
Italian Right Hand (IV 4) great but short route on a very windy day.
