Evening Citizen plus something else, Lochan

I went up to the Lochan today in Glen Coe with Chris. A little bit of sleet on the walk-in, it soon cleared to give a fine day.

We climbed Evening Citizen first which offered some fine mixed climbing. A little bit of clearing was required as there was a bit of fresh snow covering the crag but with old neve where needed. Upon completion we abseiled back down to climb the top pitch of Intruder we think, but didn't have a guide book with us, just climbing the nicest looking line.

An avalanche came down from above Twisting Gully today and there was a fair bit of fresh snow on the approach slopes too. With warm temperatures tomorrow there will certainly be releases before it stabilises again with colder temperatures forecast on Thursday.
