Menage a Trois

Today Rich and I headed up to Beinn an Dothaidh, specifically up to the North-East corrie. We passed teams heading for West Gully and a team who were going for Taxus. It must be a good route, one of the guy's was on his 5th ascent of the route! We went and climbed Menage a Trois (V,6) which is an ace route. Rich went up the awkward first pitch, which had some good climbing, I led up the corner which was really good, technical and gear where you want it. I think there is more gear but it was under snow and ice. Rich shot up the last pitch which also has some interesting little steps, a route full of interest, shame its so short. Light winds on the top but didnt notice snow getting blown about. We came accross no patches of wind slab and I think a couple of teams decended west gully. 24,30
