Looking around for a cooler place to climb we traveled across to the Cairngorms today. Summit temperatures were still forecast to be above freezing but with a genuinely warm wind blowing when we arrived things weren’t quite as cold as we had hoped for. Walking towards Coire an t-Sneachda in the sunshine was all very pleasant and although we found routes to climb there was definitely a case of racing the thaw up the crag. Rob and Tim climbed The Runnel whilst Tom, Laura and myself were on Hidden Chimney.
