Steep icy run outs!

A Ptarmigan tries to mind it's own business amongst the crowds.

The Northern Corries were very busy today, routes of all grades were being climbed. Conditions are good at the moment after the thaw/freeze cycle. Run outs below the crags are very steep and the snow very firm so careful footwork is needed, there have already been two incidents during the morning from people falling down the slopes, be careful out there!
