Crest Route in the Lochan (again)
I joined Rod and James today who were keen to go up to the Lochan. I fair bit of snow fell overnight, just stopping early this morning. It went almost down to the road, with significant accumulations above 700m. Fortunately it was light and fluffy (must of been light winds overnight) so trailbreaking wasn't too arduous.
We climbed Crest route today (V,6) which is an amazing route. Great steep and positive climbing with loads of gear. It took a bit of sweeping to find the cracks, but the snow was easily removed.
To cap it off the clear skies gave stunning views when we topped out.
