George and I had a quiet day on the east ridge of carn Dearg Mheadanoch today. It was a little drizzly early on but cloud lifted and it deried up by the afternoon. It went very warm by late afternoon. This is a cracking grade II winter arete which leads from the Allt daim up onto the Carn Mor Dearg ridge. Unfrequented and full of interest. The snow was quite soft in places but still a cracking route.
