Creag an Dubh Loch

26th February 2011

It was a relief to see the lower temperatures today and signs that the rapid thaw of recent days is slowing down. Walked up from Glas-alt-Shiel lodge on Loch Muick to Creag a’ Ghlas-uillt on the White Mounth. It would have been possible to ski from above the waterfall less than a kilometre from Glas-allt-Shiel. For those prepared to walk a bit conditions high up are still very good.

Telephoto view into The Hanging Garden on Creag an Dubh Loch.

Ski touring on the high plateau remains good. Looking South into West Corrie above Bachnagairn.

Glide crack at about 850 metres on the North-East aspect above Glas Allt burn.

A slightly different (and distant) view into the Corrie of Lochnagar.
