Day 1

Fiacaill Ridge, Cairngorms
We plan to meet in Aviemore, chat through equipment and aspirations for the day before heading up to the Cas car park where we will be able to see the grandeur of the Northern Corries. A gentle start leads us into the glacial features before we take a turn and head up towards Corie an t-Shneachda where we will make our way towards 'twin-ribs', this provides an enjoyable alternative to gain the ridge before we traverse towards the main event. We can then pick and choose a variety of lines to make the scrambling a little easier or harder depending on the conditions. We weave our way up the grippy granite, with exposed drops above Fiacaill Buttress but easier options on the Lochan side if need be, all the effort to be rewarded with fabulous views across to Shelterstone and the Loch Avon basin.
