Ventriloquist - Coire an Lochain

A few days after climbing the Auricle with Mike & Ry, I traveled back up to the Gorms with Gav. We slept in the Cairngorm carpark in the back of his estate car, which was pretty comfortable. I manage to sweet talk him into doing Ventriloquist VII,7 with me. It was the original plan when I climbed with Mike & Ry on the Sunday, so it was still tickling away in my head. Also managing to get a good look at it from Auricle made me even more keen.

Auricle, Coire an Lochain (Cairngorms)

Frozen eye lashes, numb noses and frosty mono brows were the running theme of our days climbing in Lochain last week.

Return to the motherland

I try to find the clues of where to go. The vague footprints that someone before me had left is a good indicator. ''Are we almost there?'' I look up briefly to try find my bearings, but immediately interrupted by a piercing wind on my face that makes me shy away. One step in front of the other is all I could do. the cathedral'as the guard the corries entrance tower over me.....
 Wait a minute!! I can't write this flowery shite.... I'm back in Scotland! They'll beat me up for talking like this.
