Crotched, Pygmy, skiers and Cairngorm's 'In Pinn' on Aladdin's!

Clear skies, sun and a hard overnight frost meant superb snow ice for climbing but dangerous icy conditions and serious rocky runouts for off piste skiers venturing onto the steep shaded north facing gully lines.
Fi and I had another early start to make the most of the hard frozen snow to climb Crotched Gully then Lower Central Gully onto the Mirror and up onto a the lovely dry rock on Pygmy Ridge for an early lunch sitting in the sun on the plateau.
We then decided to climb down a surprisingly icy Aladdin's Couloir and then up onto the Aladdin's Seat's pinnacle for a panoramic birds eye views of the climbers and skier in the coire.
By early afternoon several skiers and boarders had decided to descend Aladdin's couloir and were all surprised at how icy it was, even at  15.00 hrs in the afternoon...!
