The team enjoying warm sun and rock
Lovely scrambling in the sun
Largely clear of snow
Higher up
Great fun
Fiachaill Ridge
Nick enjoying the scenery
Cairn Lochan across to Ben Macdui, good snow cover still
Cornices melting fast
Pic-nicing half way up
The crack is getting bigger!
Group number 2 from those lovely folk at Cotswold Outdoor in Livingston.  5 more staff and customers on a day out with me today. It was beautiful warm and sunny weather, especially the afternoon when the temperatures rose. We had a fun day along the Fiachaill Coire Sneachda. Folk getting some scrambling skills in and it was nice to have warm rock now, unlike yesterday when we were clad in gloves much of the day. Rapid snow melt off Cairn Lochan on the way down, looking like a burn from just below the summit. Summer is here? Winter is finally over? :)
