Zuzana on the Fiacaill 

Cairn Lochan 

Fiacaill Buttress 

Away from the crowds 

Fiacaill Coire Sneachda to ourselves 

The odd step up

Beautiful and cold

Always fun

Coire an Lochain 

Something steeper 

Climbers on the Fiacaill Buttress 

Coire an t-Sneachda 

Cairn Lochan in stunning light

The walk in

Mess of Pottage 
After yesterday's stormy conditions we were treated to a stunning day here in The Cairngorms. Cold minus 5 C on the plateau but hardly any winds. Bright sun for most of the day, some cloud drifting around at times for atmosphere. Zuzana on day 2 of her course this week.  Today was a full mountain day. We had a recap on movement on steep ground in Coire an t-Sneachda before heading onto the Fiacaill Coire Sneachda ridge. We saw no one along the ridge. Views of the day were on top of Cairn Lochan were we witnessed the cloud drifting away and a stunning, crystal clear view. Top day again.
