Today's weather was due to become foul as the day went on so Adam, John and I opted for an early start to get the bulk of any climbing out the way. We headed up to SCNL with a pretty open mind as none of us have done many of the harder routes up there. On arrival we could see that we had plenty of options. Adam suggested Unicorn (VIII,8). Adam dispatched the crux pitch, unfortunately took a little slip but got back on and finished it. John climbed a short pitch of VI,6 which just ate lots of runners then I took us to the top in a long pitch of sustained VII,7. The winds were picking up as we climbed, circulating alot of snow around the coire. Graupel was falling as well so snow slopes will be feeling pretty spooky out there.
