Another dry and cold day in the West Highlands. Charlie and I headed onto the North ridge of Stob Ban to cover steep ground, avalanche awareness and safe route planning. Parts of the North Corrie were scoured but still plenty of windslab about. Ridge routes safer in these conditions and the North ridge was looking good today with plenty of hard snow on it. There was a bitterly cold NE wind, not particolary strong but soon chilling down whilst hanging about. The skies cleared toward the end of the afternoon.
