Most winter routes in the Cairngorms, including the ice falls are now in good winter nick despite being thinner than normal.
The winds dropped today so Fi and I went for a wander and gander.
There were climbers everywhere so we did a bit of Crotched Gully, Spiral Gully and a rocky rib variation to the right of the main gully on superb snow, ice and lightly rimed rock, avoiding most other teams!
Lots of photos from the day can be found here on our Cairngorm Guides and Talisman Facebook album.
I've also upload a few photos showing the main buttress and gully lines onto our Winter conditions 2016 album here.
