Trident area, Coire an t-Sneachda

The weather was fantastic today - calm, sunny and cold!
I went in to climb with Ron and Keith and we climbed up a rocky rib between Central Gully and The Runnel. The first pitch was interesting but the best bit was to come higher up with a tricky, rocky corner to pull up through with the axes in good hooks. More scrambly climbing above then some squeaky snow at the top and we were into the sunshine on the plateau.
On the way back down, we stopped to have a look at the cornice above Jacob's Ladder - it had changed quite a lot since Monday as it now has a rather unwelcoming looking cornice!
