Scottish Winter returns

 A large group

 I am trying to smile

After spending yesterday in a number of cafes and watching the rugby due to 100 mph winds up in the hills, today Swifty, James and I went into Sneachda with a very open mind. There is a fair amount of new snow around but we were able to safely pick our way up to the bottom of the Mess of Potage and as Swifty wanted to do The Haston Line (IV 4) we shot up that first and then continued with Hidden Chimney (III). Visibility at the top was nil and it was goggles on for most of the climbing and the walk off.
