Never hurry a Murray…

8 March 2015

I teamed up with Murray and headed to the Coe. The mild temperatures have wreaked havoc with black rock everywhere.

We headed up curved ridge on damp slippy rock till we hit the snow line. There is lots of snow in all the gully lines but a good freeze is needed ASAP.

The wind ripped our faces on the way off the summit. Murray had never been down the West ridge Coire na Tulloch so we headed down that instead
as the headwall looked very steep indeed with monster horizontal cracks
Impressive crevasses at the foot of the Coire.
