Lochnagar

21st January 2015

It started well but Lochnagar soon pulled in the cloud. Lot’s of breakable crust at the moment, ski’s and snowshoe’s are the way to go. Southern Sector buttresses looked quite good but left of that  there is little snow.

Allt na Giubhsaich and the crags of Lochnagar. Started clear but didn't last.
