The Screen

Today Dan, Graham and I went for a short day on The Screen (IV,5) on Aonach Dubh. The route was dripping quite alot, I ended up soaked to the skin. Couple of the screws I placed seemed pretty good, axe placements were superb and the ice was nice and soft. The ice was still fat and if we get a good freeze after this thaw it should be still in nick. We didn't want to hang around as it was raining at all levels on the route so I led up in one 60m pitch to the tree, brought Graham and Dan up and then we abbed off! Al and Kenny on Number 6 with their clients and a couple of walkers heading up towards Coire Nam Beith, not suprising it was quite quiet on the hill today.
