The Sequel – My Left Armpit
11th January 2015
You always knew there was going to be one!
Sorry about that!
(Mr Mt Equip and Mr Gore earning their keep today and managing to do a good job – many thanks!)
Not a very nice day – although pretty much asÂ expected with rising freezing levelsÂ and rain toÂ 900m. Was able to confirm the rain to about 700m whereupon a temper tantrum won outÂ from wet snow ‘stilts’ on base of skis!
Skis useful for access today with deep new drifts on the main Coire Ardair track ( certainly better than post holing)however they did come with a health warning in the wet conditions.
I carried to above the birch treesÂ initially hoping to avoid the wetter snow at lowerÂ elevations – all to no avail as the rising freezing levels beat me to the top and rain won out. C’est la vie.
Tomorrow’s another day, colder again so here’s hoping!
