Excellent hard snow on the north aspect of Lurcher's Crag
Atmospheric clouds
Braeriach trying to peep out
The summit ridge clear of snow
The top of South Gully
I love this time of year with the long days, snow on the hills and some warmth when the sun does eventually make an appearance. So a midday start up to Creag an Leth-Choinn  (Lurcher's Crag) from The Lairig Ghru side. Cycling from the house and the excellent path up through the forest that eventually brings you into The Lairig Ghru. Setting off later with the promise of the winds dying and more sun, which is exactly what happened. This hill often is free of cloud while all the other major Cairngorm mountains are clagged in, which was the case today. I think it was the first time this year that I have been on a summit with no gloves on and just a gentle Cairngorm  breeze sitting in sunshine. Looking even better tomorrow! :)
