West Buttress

Today Jamie and I headed up to Beinn an Dothaidh, Bridge of Orchy Hills. Jamie suggested Cirrus (IV,4) so off we went. The first pitch was fine, the second was very lean and totally covered in verglass. We didn't fancy it it the conditions we were under, so we headed down and saved the day by climbing West Buttress (III). We headed down West Gully (I) which was starting to get loaded with fresh wind slab. Very windy at the start of the day then easing off, but snow was falling most of the afternoon. The turf on the crag was bomber.
