This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
We made our way up to the Dubh Loch today. Nick and Steve from the Braemar Mountain Rescue Team had made an ascent of Central Gully yesterday and apparently conditions were still good. After a cooler period dribbles of ice were all over the crag but falling in rising temperatures. Although it should be expected at the end of Winter, it should be noted there have been a number of rock falls including a couple of bigger blocks. Probably best not wandering along the crag base unnecessarily for a while yet!

Thanks for the reports again this year, really appreciate all your efforts.
Met up on Carn a’ Gheoidh on a rather good day back on 24th Jan. A great season for the touring.
