Yesterday I forgot my camera so thanks to Claire for these pictures. We went to climb Curved Ridge which was a good choice. We even got a touch of sunshine and the views were very good much of the time. Claire led me up the whole route including Crowberry Tower (much more slippery than Curved Ridge) which was great practice at the front end of the rope, making decisions and setting up belays.

We descended the west ridge of Coire na Tulloch and cut back in to the coire low down to see the avalanche debris from a few weeks ago. There are a couple of snow patches on Curved Ridge and generally excellent snow cover in the coire. It was all very wet though of course. Today we went to the Ice Factor to do some coaching on climbing ice and then under Ballachulish Bridge for the mixed climbing. Hopefully we'll be able to get onto a good climb tomorrow as the temperature drops.
