Another great day with superb climbing conditions on the Mess of Pottage and views right across Scotland. With bomber first time placements on the Message the climbing was an absolute joy - so good I almost forgot to stop! The only downside was that the icy conditions meant finding protection was more difficult in the blocked and verglassed cracks, however the positive nature of the climbing more than compensated. A selection of pegs are definitely useful though...!

We met Simon and Kenny at the carpark this morning heading off to climb Central Crack Route. Simon had climbed Deep Throat on Thursday and said conditions were superb in Coire an Lochain.
