On new years eve Amy and I walked into Grabh Coire bothy, a little stone shelter in a remote coire half way up the Lairig Ghru.

The next day we summited Braeriach and walked along the ridge then descend back into the Lairig Ghru ready to go back through the Chalamain Gap all in classic Scottish weather. Lovely.

The next day we did Fiacaill Rdige in the northern coires as Amy's first winter route. The ridge was disappointingly short and all the tricky sections are fun but easily avoidable. But pretty atmospheric in the mist.
