Joey, Stu, Glen and Wes were out with me today on the CMD arete up to Ben Nevis. It was a cold and claggy day, cloudbase down to 900m and lower most of the time. A moderate cold wind was producing rime ice on the tops today with the freezing level probably around 1100m. At least it was quiet and we enjoyed the route to ourselves most of the time. Hopefully next week will produce some clear and warm days, so they say.
