Full winter ridge. 29th April


Alan had thought about doing a winter course with us this year and accidentaly got a quality winter day at the end of April!

After an hour being blown up into Coire lagan by a blizzard we cramponed up at the first narrows in the Great Stone Shoot, climbed Bomb Alley to Bealach MhicCoinnich then climbed Thearlaich by the Coruisk side.


A 20m abseil took us into the head of the Stone Shoot from where we climbed Alasdair. Tantalising glimpses appeared of our roof-top route as the mists finally began to clear.

The snow was treacherous in the top 100m of the Stone Shoot but  the pressure eased soon after and even allowed for a wee bumslide before a sunny walkout.
