Dinnertime Buttress

Alper and Sandra approaching
 Today was day two for Sandra and Alper.  More leading was on the cards for them on Dinnertime Buttress.  Alper led the whole route except for a wee pitch at the top which Sandra had a shot on.  Not bad for her second day winter climbing.  Again the weather was fantastic, cold and clear with a stiff breeze.  Climbers spotted on Raeburns, Scabbard, and Dorsal Arete in SCNL.  This weekend I have been working in the sunshine for West Coast Mountain Guides.

Easy descending in all this snow!
