To kick things off, we ventured south, to Beinn an Dothaidh, where we climbed Taxus, with it’s Direct Icefall Finish, and West Buttress. The first couple of pitches up Taxus were fine, but the ice on the direct finish was a bit on the cruddy side. Not enough to spoil the climbing though!
We then descended West Chimney and traversed over to West Buttress, which with its turfy climbing on an exposed rising traverse, made for a nice contrast to Taxus.
Very quiet in the corrie today, with only one other team who also climbed Taxus.
If you fancy being guided on a classic winter climb, such as Taxus, get in touch!
