Lochnagar – Sunday 5th February
With good weather – Lochnagar was popular, both in the corrie and on the summits. Cold wind chill on the tops and very firm underfoot conditions throughout.
I’ll leave the photos to tell the story….
Shadow and Parallel buttresses with Raeburn’s Gully on the right.
Raeburn’s Gully was a popular choice today.
Firm snow-ice underfoot. Climbers passing old debris. Un-tweaked photo – the jacket really was THAT bright!
Firm snow around the corrie rim
Top of Right Hand Black Spout.
Steep snow finish to Left Hand Black Spout.
Water-ice on the plateau
Pleasant conditions on the summit plateau despite the chilly wind.
