23rd January 2022
A windy day with a significant wind chill effect when you crossed exposed ground. The cloud kept rolling in and then receding around the corrie rim but further East, blue sky and sunshine was evident. Looking across to the main Cairngorms it looked like the summits were in the clouds but my ‘Spy in the North’ often had clear skies above them – so maybe it was a band of cloud blowing through the main plateau area.
Lochnagar is now looking very lean with broken gullies and patchy snow. What was there was pretty firm though. Difficult to take any decent photos today as there was a thin halo of cloud around the corrie rim which was back lit by the sun. No real change on the horizon so the wait continues….
