Creag an Dubh Loch
25th January 2023
A bit of a damp and cloudy start but conditions started to improve during the morning and by early afternoon the sun came out for a while. Fairly brisk Westerly wind blowing in, but all things considered – not a bad day in the end. The snow was soft and wet at lower elevations and the burns are still running relatively high due to melt water – Wet boots at The Stulan Burn…
The freezing level is set to lower during tomorrow and will drop to 800 metres – This will see the soft wet snow, slowly start to firm up with icy surface layers developing at higher altitudes.
Photos below from today’s trip up to Creag an Dubh Loch. Quite a large (and noisy) ice collapse occurred (Hanging Garden area) while I was up there. Good to see some ice hanging on in there and there is still quite a bit of snow around the top of the crags. Hopefully it won’t take long to restore the climbing conditions when Winter decides to make a reappearance!
