Today I climbed Stuic Butress in Coire Lochan nan Eun which is to the west of Lochnagar. I chose to make the long approach form Glen Muick to the col below the Meikle Pap before crossing the col south of Meall Coire na Saobhaidhie to the bottom of the ridge.

The route itself is a large prominent buttress that consisted of some nice icy steps and sections of snow arête.
nearing the summit an RAF sea king made a couple of close passes to me before descending into towards Dubh Loch where I headed after the route to meet my Dad and Gus.
