Quick link up

Nice moves right at the start
Today Kenny and I hit the Cairngorms for a link up of s couple of routes.  We were quite keen to just keep moving and not hang around on belays too long.  Armed with a single rope and a small rack we started of on Original Summer Route (IV,5) on Aladdins Buttress.  It was in reasonable condition.  a good freeze would bring it into excellent condition.  After topping out we traversed across to Pygmy Ridge (IV,5) and quested up this.  As the winds intensified as we climbed hight we moved off the ridge proper and escaped up the top on the right...didnt fancy flying today.  With a tight time schedule we bailed out content and happy with two routes that neither of us had done.

Waiting for a team ahead to move so time to kill!
