(Above) Creag Meagaidh summit, 1130m. A good day for it – light winds and bright sunshine; the air temperature at summit cairn was 3.2 celsius
(Above) Fairly quiet today, despite the optimum conditions; underfoot things were softening on all the plateau slopes, only the heavily shaded North and North-East facing aspects remaining firm underfoot.
(Above) Buttresses and Post Face of Coire Ardair. Still plenty of ice around in these locations. The ramp of Staghorn Gully ,to the right of the Post Face, the scene of both ice and rock fall yesterday; the South Easterly facing ramp an easy target for these objective dangers in the bright sunshine.
