Some strong winds blowing up the East side of Aonach Mor today. We abseiled down Tunnel Vision then climbed up taking the right hand exit. The lower section was holding quite a lot of soft snow while the top two pitches were nice and solid. The cornices we could see looked relatively small and solid. Attached are a couple of shots, (all I could manage in the blustery conditions).
Also thanks to Krister for some photos of Point Five Gully, a Swedish IFMGA guest staying at Calluna. Alpine Madness

Hey up Alan.
On Twisting Grooves in the Lochan today. Lean, but what snow was on it was helpful. Frozen turf, no need to clean for gear – nice. Upper chimney dry. Folks on Moonshadow – similarly lean but they were moving ok. Twisting gully right hand not in so they got onto moonshine from the standard twisting gully route. SC not quite there yet. Folks on Ordinary route (Central Buttress), Langsam, Spectre, NC and Dorsal as usual.
