Aladdin's Mirror Direct

Another lovely day with sunshine and mostly blue skies though we could tell it was windy up on the plateau because of the distant roar of the wind and the speed of the clouds skimming past. It was totally calm in Coire an t-Sneachda and Ron, Gareth and I wandered up to Aladdin's Mirror Direct for a bit of ice climbing.
The ice was good though the bulges are steeper than they look. Instead of continuing upwards and into the wind, we abseiled back down to go back down for lunch in the sun. For Gareth, being out in the sun was a bit of a novelty as he has spent the past few days walking and camping in the wet over in the west.
All in all, a very sociable day spent blethering with Al and Derek who also climbed the Mirror Direct, Neil whom we watched ski down Half a Gully then Aladdin's Couloir and more who were also out enjoying the day.
