(Above) Binnein Shaus (the ‘wrong’ side) behind Ardverike on the North side of Loch Laggan – very reflective!
(Above) The ‘reflective’ theme continued later in Coire Ardair. Ice still in evidence both on water and on crag; 2.2 celsius water temperature for the swimmers with a positive balmy airtemp poolside of 9.8 celsius today.
(Above) Can’t say as I could recommend either activity (Loch swimming / Ice climbing) at present – a steady rock and icefall a feature of the crag today (x2 photos above- almost an action shot ) the small gully centre shot,at the base of Staghorn / to the right of North Post……and the water? Bloody freezing !!
