Aladdin's Mirror Direct






Carron and I had such a good day out in Coire an t-Sneachda yesterday, we went back for more fun and games today. We walked into the corrie in low cloud, drizzle and gusty winds but with the weather forecast saying that the weather was to improve as the day went on, we kept optimistic and climbed up towards Aladdin's Mirror Direct.

The ice was very amenable and positive for both the crampons and the axes and it was a pleasure to climb on, The top of the icefall came all too quickly! We abseiled off as we were after a short day and enjoyed a bit of a cold shower, which was blowing upwards, as we abseiled down.

Also, caught on camera on the SAIS blog, see here http://saisncairngorms.blogspot.com/2011/03/mild-with-soggy-snow.html

There were a few folk in the corrie today on The Runnel (Ken Applegate), the Mirror and some of the other gullies.

Ron was out with Erica and Kris for their last day of the mountaineering course digging snow shelters and some photos from Ron here.
