24th January, 2007 – An Attempt to Climb Sron Na Lairig (Glen Coe)

John and I headed up mid-week for an attempt at climbing Sron Na Lairig in Glen Coe but it wasn’t to be as our late start and the condition of the snow / ice left us with little upward progress.

Still, a great day was had and my best day of weather out on the hills of the year so far. It was good to finally get on a gully after the attempts of the previous two week and in a nice setting too. This is definitely somewhere to come back to later this year hopefully. This route has now beaten others in our group twice as well as this latest failed attempt and so there is a bit of an attraction to going back and resolving that now. Other groups above us did make it to the top taking other lines and with an hour or two advantage over us.
