As per my response to Malky_c above, my original tentative plan had been to take a look at the Chioch Nose. Well, I did, and after also reading a description of it, decided it was likely to be a bit technically difficult for me to attempt solo. Hence going for a' Chioch instead.

Did you get the weather for an ascent of the Nose???? If so, I hope you write it up.

We're on our way up there tomorrow morning. I'll be thinking of you AK; if we do the route I'll write up a detailed report with lots of info. Fingers crossed with the weather!
