Stunning morning in Coire an t-Sneachda
Lovely conditions on the Fiacaill


Bags of blue skies above 

Ian going for the harder moves!

Fabulous traverse
A bit busier on the buttress
Plenty of climbers out today
Loch Morlich from the Fiacaill
Fingers Ridge
Good snow cover for touring

…...and dropping into Alladin's
Nearing the top of the ridge

afternoon weather front
If you like your mountains with good snow cover, no wind, blue skies and lovely sunshine then The Cairngorms was the place to be today. In just a couple of days of light snowfall the Northern Corries have been transformed. The plateau now has excellent snow cover, good enough for ski touring judging by the amount of skiers out today. Indeed it was very busy for a Monday on the hills. Coire an t-Sneachda was crawling with folk and there seemed to be a queue on one of the routes on the Fiacall Buttress, Belhaven? The Fiacall a Coire Sneachda though was much quieter and great fun as always. Not a breath of wind all day and an absolute stunner of a day to be out and about.
