Easy does it.

Jamie B was planning a long hike into a remote bothy and even more remote route, but freezing levels have been high for several days so he and Jamie H decided that Aonach Mor east face was a better (higher) bet. Temperatures hovered around freezing all day but snow and ice was mostly in good condition and they were spared the collapsing cornices that had caused a bit of grief over the weekend.

JB has a dodgy wrist at the moment so is keeping the grades low and trying to avoid pulling down too hard. Left Twin (II) and Tunnel Vision (III) fitted the bill and with numerous other Fort William characters kicking about a relaxed and sociable day was had. Forecast to stay mild until the weekend, but with a dry thaw we hopefully shouldnt lose too much snow.
