Forty Thieves area and Jacob's Ladder

Back climbing again today and back into Coire an t-Sneachda to climb the route that Ron, Alastair and Charles climbed yesterday as they made it sound such good fun. The snow was lovely and solid and with lots of little wind scoops to drop into for a rest. All too soon, I was up on the plateau so I dropped back down below the Mess of Pottage to have a look for Ron and the guys and spotted them climbing a rocky rib to the right of Jacob's Ladder. As I was below Jacob's Ladder, the quickest way back up was to climb up that route on some rather large steps! The wind was beginning to pick up in the afternoon and some snow and rain showers were coming in. Snow forecast for tomorrow!
