CAIRNGORMS, SCOTLAND - JANUARY 28, 2012: Andy Turner and climbing partner Emma Warren look over to the Mess of Pottage buttress in Coire an t'Sneachda, Cairngorms National Park, East Highlands of Scotland. Coire an t'Sneachda is a popular winter climbing location in Scotland by virtue of it's plentiful routes and the fact it it only a 40 minute walk from a nearby Ski Centre car park. The corrie has though been the scene of much drama over the years, because when you add in the strong winds and Arctic-like storms for which the Cairngorms mountains are famous, it becomes an altogether more difficut place to reach or get out of. (For example, the journey from the Ski Centre can often take over 2 hours in bad weather and in 2006, a Royal Air Force search and rescue helicopter was grounded in the corrie for several days when its rotors iced up during a rescue of a climber with a broken ankle).
