Bit Blowy and Busy in Sneachda

Mandy and I decided to get a route in today before the worst of the weather hits tomorrow. With strong winds forecast and set to increase by mid afternoon we opted for a quick route in Sneachda, where we climbed Hidden Chimney on the Mess of Pottage, there was good firm snow on it but conditions were definitely lean. The crag was busy, with lots of teams from the BMC International Meet that's being held at Glenmore Lodge this week.
