Glen Clova is currently undergoing something of a renaissance at the moment, with a steady stream of quality winter routes being added over the past few seasons. Take Winter Corrie, for example. Long regarded as a venue for easy to middle grades with only one route graded harder than Grade IV, it now sports several excellent technical additions including Wildcat Wall, The Tiger Finish, Waterfall Buttress Direct, Moon Ice Jazz and Stalingrad.
Henning Wackerhage has been very much at the forefront of these developments, and on Sunday February 10 he visited Corrie Fee with Robbie Miller intent on finding a way through the steep mixed ground to the right of Look C Gully.
The result was Frozen Forest, a new IV,4 that breaks through the lower barrier wall via the overhung slot taken by The Wild Places. Climbing without a guidebook, Henning and Robbie enjoyed ‘six pitches of excellent adventure’ on largely new terrain.
