Folk heading up Broad Gully, SCNL
Amazing depth of snow down to 700m
Mick with new  SHARP crampons, essential today!
More big and beautiful cornices
Don't trip here!
Tram lines in the deep snow up to SCNL
An even better Alpine day in Glencoe today. It was just Mick with me again as poor Mike was still unwell. It was virtually wall to wall sunshine, very warm and truly Alpine conditions. Soft snow where the sun had hit it but the ridge onto Stob Coire Nan Lochain was extremely icy, I mentioned to Mick that one slip here and we'd be in The Clachaig in no time! It was one of those days to savour and you could have been forgiven you were in another country. Surprisingly not many folk out today. Sheer magic! A great 3 days with the guys who had two days of complete contrast from the first day on Aonach Mor, two sides of a Scottish winter.
