Rime, Views, perfect weather, oh and bit more rime.

Davy and I headed off in to Coire an Lochain today to kick start his season and make the most of the fantastic weather and conditions. We romped up Andromeda in helpful conditions and was on the top by 11:15 to enjoy the views.
Number two buttress is plastered with good useable ice and snow, however the rime and verglass, which was considerable, make gear placements worrying.
An utterly brilliant day, with perfect weather, and so worth making the effort to escape the fog of town.
An earlier start tomorrow for a little bit of a longer trip.

A few pics from today
