Still Sunny!

12th March 2018

It was another great day in Lochaber, well in the morning at least, when you got above the clouds. Later on, the cloud band rose and obscured the summits

Fairly stable snowpack and some cold snow temperatures still up high. The surface has some nice sparkly surface hoar crystals onto just now, caused by low surface temperatures overnight. Beautiful, but if buried by subsequent snowfall, can be deadly!

    Looks like brilliant conditions for ice climbing!
