Soft snow on the side of the Fiacaill Ridge
Spot Jacob's Ladder
Stephen on some steeper ground
Two folk descending Alladin's Couloir, was it really that windy on the tops then?
A deserted Coire an t-sneachda, cloud above the tops in the afternoon
Ptarmigan out numbering people today
It was very strong winds and mild weather with freezing levels above the summits and gusts of 90mph. Stephen is out with me for two days, building on his winter skills he gained on an intro to winter walking with Glenmore Lodge last month. We headed into the SW winds and found some shelter on the eastern aspect of the Fiacaill Ridge. The winds were tolerable so we continued further into a very quiet Coire an t-sneachda where there were more ptarmigan than people. The clouds lifted and it dried up in the afternoon. Slightly colder conditions for tomorrow so hopefully the snow pack will start to freeze up again
