Almost dry on Fingers Ridge

With a forecast of light winds and showers today Lucy, John and I headed into Coire an t-Sneachda with the plan of climbing fingers ridge. The corrie was quiet with a few other walking groups out but no one else climbing. The showers came and went but they were light although some were hail and snow! Although the rock was cold it was fairly dry after the first pitch and made for pleasant climbing.

We climbed the route in 4 pitches with Lucy and John building their own belays at each stance before belaying each other up. This gave them lots of practice at the ropework that they learnt yesterday and more practice at placing gear. They are now in a good position for leading some routes tomorrow.
