Totally Tropical

19th December 2017

It was feeling distinctly tropical on the hill today. Unsurprisingly, summit temperatures of about plus 5 degrees Celsius are having a sub-optimal effect on winter conditions, and overnight rain forecast for this evening is just going to make things worse. Oh dear!

Ben Nevis is up there somewhere.

Looking over towards the base of Number 5 Gully. This was about as much of a view as I got today.

The Douglas boulder disappearing into the mist.

Mild! Over seven degrees at my snowpit site.
