I have had a day off today so headed out with Huw, back to the Cairngorms, to make the most of the overnight re-freeze after yesterdays thaw. We enjoyed great neve as we made our way to Hells Lum, hoping to climb Deep Cut Chimney. Several other parties had the same idea so we enjoyed a quick romp up Hells Lum (III), down the Fiachall Ridge and then climbed The Seam (IV,4). It hadn’t been climbed for a while and so there was lots of cleaning but Huw did a great job of digging the gear placements out and the snow was good too. As usual we had plenty of giggles along the way, another great day out.
