On February 21, Brian Duthie and Forrest Templeton visited Winter Corrie in Glen Clova and made the second ascent of Moon Ice Jazz (VI,7).
“The forecast for Sunday suggested frozen terrain down to 400m,” Brian explained. “So Forrest and I decided to go into Winter Corrie and see if Moon Ice Jazz was in condition. From the corrie floor it looked like it was in decent nick so we decided to give it a go – my first winter route of the season!
I know that Henning has been keen for someone to repeat his line and confirm the grade. As he describes in his blog the crux pitch is steeper than it looks, gear hard won and difficult to place. On the day we thought it was worth VI, 6.”
