Raeburn's, Lochan

Today I was with Tim and Stuart while working for Jagged Globe. It was the last day of their course. Yesterday they had done some dry tooling and I thought it would be good to put it to action.

We headed up to the Lochan in Glen Coe and climbed Raeburn's (IV). There has been a fair bit of snow and it is easy to find waist deep drifts. Fortunately there was a line of exposed boulders leading up to the route. On the climb though I had to do a fair bit of cleaning. Crusty top layer, powder below, chunks of old detached neve. Still we ascended and had fun. Tim's only complaint was that it finished all a little too soon.
