(Above) Looking up to the NE ridge of Sron a Ghoire from the birch woods on its shoulder. A day of variable light: occasionally bright but mostly overcast with an 800m cloud base. Hard and/or crusty on the old snowpack but with some new drifted snow on steep lee slopes above 900m, though tending to be localised. A covering of thin fresh snow down to 500m in areas shaded from occasional sun.
(Above) Noticed this winter skills group under instruction just below the col on Sron a Ghoire. The snow patch they’re using is at approximately 720m.
(Above) Some sun! Looking in to Coire Mor a’ Chlachair. The summit cairn of Beinn a Chlachair 1087m Â just visible on the right-of-centre skyline.
(Above) Moody skies further west. Far skyline: R to L – Â Sron na Garbh-bheinne 849m and Stob Coire Sgriodain 979m.
