Solo  Sucess!

Lots of fresh snow and far from the perfect conditions to be soloing the route but a great outing and first across Tower Gap. Ascended the Douglas Gap West Gully to avoid the crowds. 1pm top-out and climbed in under 3 hours from Douglas Gap.

Alpine style climb  Sucess!

Snow on the little tower and beyond. Excellent weather, occasional cloud cover and light snow showers, but mainly clear. 4.5 hour climb from CIC hut to summit. Snow still quite deep on the summit.

Great first winter climb  Sucess!

My first Scottish winter experience. Good weather (though cloudy at the top) but lots and lots of snow which required to dig out all the placements. Some trickier climbing than expected on the lower part, but we probably didn't take the easiest path.

Car Park at 05:30, CIC hut at 07:30, summit at 14:45 and back down (via the zigzags) at 17:30.

Long long day  Sucess!

Out of condition when we climbed with no consolodated snow, Ice or turf made for an interesting day summited at 9pm
