Visibility wasn’t great from around 850 metres today, however it wasn’t particularly windy or snowy either.

We used snowshoes again, to walk from the track to Lochnagar Col.

Frozen Lochnagar.

Couldn’t see anything of the Lochnagar crags.

There is a tremendous amount of snow in the Southern Sector. Not often you could ski down here.
