The Post Face of Creag Meagaidh

'The Window' and the Inner Corrie
On the plateau, nearing the summit of Meagaidh
Fine views, sunshine and we missed all the showers in the east :)
Huge cornices above The Post Face
The weather just keeps getting better and better and looking like a glorious Easter with full winter conditions everywhere. Today Laurence and I headed a bit further west away from the fore casted snow showers on The Cairngorm mountains. So Creag Meagaidh is just enough west to escape and we savoured blue skis and virtually sunshine all day. A low freezing level during the night and cold temps still during the day means frozen snow and neve in many places. I was wanting to take Laurence onto Easy Gully on the Post Face but there are still many places of wind slab in the easier gully lines. We saw plenty of folk climbing, The Pumpkin looked very busy. We never encountered many folk walking so it was a nice quiet day to be on the hill. More to come, enjoy the sun and snow this Easter.
