Aonach Mor

Today Ken and I had a leisurely start and headed into Aonach Mor East Face. We abseiled in down Morwind and went to the base of Siamese Twin (IV,5). Ken led the first pitch below the main steepening then I took the main pitch up. Didn't feel too steep, so probably only IV,4 at the moment. It got us to the abseil station on Left Twin and we got ourselves back to the bottom of the routes. Wanting to do something a little mixed, we next opted for Lickety Split (IV,5). We were up and over the cornice in 4 pitches, with Ken leading the 1st and 3rd. The second pitch was definitely the crux and felt pretty hard for IV,5. Maybe its IV,6! Anyway, two really good climbs. Surprisingly we had the whole crag to ourselves. We heard some voices but never saw any other climbers. Several skiers were out enjoying the Scottish ski resort conditions too.
