Creag Meagaidh is a funny place when it comes to weather - often on the edge of weather from the west and/or weather from the east. When we made our plan last night we were going to the Ben today but when we met this morning, we both said "Meagaigh?"
Fran borrowed a light weight helmet today to try it out - as soon as she put it on, there was a "God Fran, that is a horrendous helmet!"
After taking the p**s for some time about the helmet, we swam our way to the bottom of the route - South Pipe Direct IV,4. I think that I can honestly say that this route is one of the most enjoyable routes that I have ever done - 5 loooooonnnnnnggggggg pitches with a little bit of something on each pitch.
Most definitely topped out into the white room - thankfully with little wind. For info, there is loads of snow waiting to get moved around when the wind picks up.
