Beinn Chuirn - EAS ANIE

Eas Annie 150m IV.4 (left variation). This is in the Tyndrum area so reasonably "south" and also very convenient for the The Real Food Cafe great food, fast service, and free water!
We hitched a lit down the (extreemly) snowy long track with the geologist who's trying to open a gold mine (yes there's gold in these hills!).

Wow - more blue skies!   We started fairly low so we could get 3 pitches in.
The couple behind us caught up and we realised we'd been sharing routes on previous days.

 

Above you'll see the IV.4 variation going straight up, and the III which goes more rightwards.
Look carefully to see the yellow helmet at the bottom of the ice. This route took all our 10 ice screws - if you have a few more they might be useful.


Above the steep sheet the fun continues with more steep ice in amazing formations.
