Aonach Mor, Morwind

Today we found peace and quiet on the East Face of Aonach Mor (though not on the walk up the ski area). We abseiled in and had fun climbing Morwind, which had a good amount of neve and ice.

All the crags to the South of this route are very much buried but to the North the sun has stripped snow leaving dry rock. The cornices though are large, and only the Morwind buttress is possible to top-out on. Someone had been down easy gully and by the afternoon a few had skied down from the climbers col though there is a lot of soft snow down there.
