A cold wind on Lochnagar today with some impressive snow devils blowing around but luckily the cloud held off and lifted above the summit. The old snow is firm and icy and the consequences of a slip or trip are serious. Some unstable snow around the rim of the corrie and in the gully exits which are fairly steep in places. Little change expected tomorrow.
