I was up in Boat of Garten for a few days over New Year with a bunch of friends. We only got one day's climbing in, a quick raid into Coire an t-Sneachda on New Year's Day. The weather was a bit wild and most of the crags had been stripped by the thaw.
Fiachaill Buttress was still well and truly wintery though. Our choice of Belhaven was more like an ice route than a rocky mixed line! It was an ideal route for a short, low-stress day.
