Steve and ice

Feithe Buidhe Slabs 

Hell's Lum Crag 

Coire an Lochain 

Plenty of ice

Plenty of cloud 

Looking good, today
Brothers Chris & Steve have been returning for a winter course for so many years I have lost count! Their annual pilgrimage to the Scottish winter mountains is always a pleasure for me. Three days of winter fun in the Cairngorms kicked off with a great day exploring the Feithe Buidhe Slabs area. I love this place.  Wild, remote and peaceful. Just 3 other folk in the area which made it unusually busy! Plenty of ice and although there is much less snow than normal it was a good covering to  make it worth venturing into. A cold morning with plenty of frozen ground and firm snow gave way to a much milder afternoon and snow softening up.
Unfortunately it's looking mild for next few days. Winter on hold......again.
