West Ridge, Lochnagar.

23rd January 2014

A visit to the West Ridge of Lochnagar today. It was very windy and very cold. Visibility was poor due to the windblown snow. A view opened a couple of times but mostly it was hard work.

A view into the Corrie from the West Ridge.

Looking up the West Ridge

New snow was poorly bonded to older layers.

The wind kept on coming. it was hard work on exposed ridges.

The wind had created some interesting snow features.
