A busy day on Lochnagar.

7th January 2018

Great conditions on the tops today.

View across the Dee.


Lochnagar. Looking white!


Very busy today. The Cairngorm Club had a planned walk today and there was plenty of others taking advantage of todays conditions.


Walkers at the Col.


Good cover. The corrie has had strong winds blowing into it which has helped improve stability. 


A few climbers in the main corrie and the Southern Sector today. 


Summit plateau, stunning today.

    Great day out and, as you say, hard going in places. 17 of us (Cairngorm Club) summited today, by various routes and got back in time for high tea at Banchory.
    Great reports, essential for safe hill travel – thanks.

      Hello Garry, thanks to you and the club for making the footpath through the snow, made it just a bit easier for me! Glad the meet went well, you had a cracking day!
