29th January 2024

There has been a bit more snow loss due to recent thaws but the area is still holding up quite well. What snow is left is very firm and icy. A dull day today with NO WIND! Can safely say that’s a first for me this season!

Lochnagar corrie today. Bit of snow loss yesterday but otherwise it remains in good shape.


Ice forming in places, out of Black Spout and West Gully, bottom right.

Walker heading up to the plateau. The snow was very icy today.


Two people on the climbers traverse above the Loch, think they were heading to the Black Spout.
