Today Graham and I head up to Stob Coire Nan Lochain and climbed Crest Route (V,6). Well in to the 3rd pitch I was finding that the cracks were choked with ice and gear was very hard to find in the upper section. I ended up abbing off. Bit of a shame as it was great climbing up to that point. Was windy at the crag, some riming present and it felt pretty cold up there, in fact very cold. Lot of other teams out on Dorsal and Ordinary.
