Making the most of the weather with two classic routes in a day

Looking down pitch 2  Pitch 2  PItch 3  Pitch 3  Belaying at the top of the route having now moved further back to reduce rope drag and have a good view of Mike continuing up the crappy loose section.  Coire an Lochain with the Great Slab on the bottom left  Looking back into the coire, Savage Slit is the obvious crack line  Climbers on our next objective, Magic Crack in Coire an t-Sneachda  Heading down the Goat Track into Coire an t-Sneachda  Climbers on Fingers Ridge  Climbers starting up the main crack pitch  Mike on pitch 2  Mike on pitch 2  Fiona seconding pitch 2  Fiona starting up pitch 3 with the other party abseiling down at the same time.  Pitch 3  Pitch 3  Pitch 3   At the end of the crack, the wee bulge and top out are looming  Over the bulge  Mike seconding pitch 3   Almost at the top  Abseiling back down  Magic Crack in the evening sun  Climbers about to start pitch 2 of Magic Crack
