Not a bad day today over Lochnagar. Broken cloud cover around the summits.
Hills came and went in the variable cloud cover.
Typical today in the corrie. Shallow newly developed unstable windslab on top of a hard and icy crust.
The pole in the middle marks the location of the first aid box. Obviously it will be difficult to access the contents at the moment.
Central Buttress had a few ascents today. Free of unconsolidated snow its a safe choice in powdery conditions.
Enjoying the main ice pitch of West Gully.
Cloud cleared away from the tops mid afternoon. Still looked claggy over the Southern Cairngorms.
