Cloud down below the snow
What not to wear
A dry-ish day in prospect so I went for a quick blast up on to Carn Mor Dearg this morning. Not much in the way of views over to the north face of  Ben Nevis to see how much and where the snow is. I headed up kitted out like summer today with my hill running shoes, which are fine even in soft snow, which wasn't much in abundance on CMD. There was quite a few cars in both the car parks this morning so lots of folk hopeful for good climbing conditions. Good news on the horizon with  lower temperatures and some white stuff forecast at the weekend. There have been  many years where there has been a poor early/mid season and a good, late snowy end to the season, so don't give up just yet! Nice to get back home dry for a change!
