6am, A82, 8º, stag keeping roadside watch, wave to the lucky tree, head-torch, North Buttress ... 8am Daylight, route stripped, we head to North East Zig-Zags. This is a Jimmy Marshall route that terminates on North Buttress (I don’t know anyone who has climbed this). Pitch one and I "bail", it looked wintery but it was all slush. We swim down Crowberry Gully and across to Curved Ridge. This is the 3rd time I have climbed this route in 6 weeks. I agree with Craig, it`s a great route that goes in any condition and always provides “sport”. For sport we climb and move together till after the "open book corner, " then “bail” (bailing is often more exciting that climbing). 3 full length abseils and some down-climbing made for an interesting and exciting day.
