The thaw continues at all levels with more snow loss, particularly below 950 metres. The burns were flowing well and the route from Sluggain required a bit of wading through reasonably deep fast moving water.

The walk into Beinn a Bhuird.


Above Corrie na Ciche. Remaining snow is thawing but well bonded throughout. Higher plateau areas such as Ben Avon above Di are holding onto best coverage.


Looking down Sluggain Buttress with the rocky tor of A Choich in the background. Buttresses are black but gullies are holding onto snow.
