Short Circuit: Fiacaill buttress.

Jamie and I had a fantastic day out the other day. We headed into the northern corries and despite the recent snow, things looked surprisingly black, but Fiacaill buttress had been out of the teeth of the thawing wind so looked white, well hoared and covered in rime as a result of the thaw and refreeze. One team had set off up the couloir, so we were left to do something on the right of the couloir. We opted for Short Circuit. A good little route, with the pitches getting progressively harder as you go. The top pitch was a cheeky little number, I quite enjoyed the steep crack but the slab was thin, I suspect it may have had more turf at some point in the past. A good short day out, good fun and good company, what more can you ask for?
