(Above) Heavy rain all day below 800 metres resulting in some fast flowing hillside watercourses – and paths!

(Above) Lower slopes leading to Sron a Ghoire’s NE Gullies. No snow below 800 metres.

(Above) A soggy pit site today (Fantastic gear testing conditions all the same!)

(Above) The ‘Apprentice’ – happy at his work (happier than others were today at any rate!)

    Great to see the ‘Apprentice’ in fine fettle.
    Great, but testing,
    conditions coming up.

      Thanks for that Stan,
      …and I think we have solved our photo upload issue at last – something to do with an ‘apple’ I’m led to believe!
      Thanks again for the heads up.

    Thanks for keeping the forecasts, blog and pictures going under these conditions, really valuable work. Hope you and the apprentice have thawed/dried out.

      Thanks Colin,

      Yes, the ‘Apprentice’ doesn’t seem to mind the wet – unlike the ‘Master’!!
