Line of least resistance up North Buttress on Stob Coire nan Lochan. Snowed up rock, mostly good hooks and slots, little turf.

no description

Comments:
Good ``proper'' conditions, i.e. turf frozen and lots of snow and ice, required lots of digging and scraping. But not as much digging as on Tuesday when we went back to look for the rucksacks we left near the bottom of the route ...

RAb on 2000-07-16 at Wallaces Cave

interesting layback on a flake after getting started from just below it. Move out of the layback on to a ledge and make your way up the crack to finish with a couple of small reachy holds.
