Axe,  crampons and full winter gear
Cairn Gorm summit 
White out in May

Coire an t-Sneachda 
It was full winter conditions again today in The Northern Cairngorms. A constant light snowfall throughout the day, stiff winds, poor visibility and around minus 3 C on the tops. It may well be The second week in May but it was out with the full ironmongery today. Friends Judy & Suzane were out with me for a fun day in the hills. Trudy was last out with me on a Navigation Course around 11 years ago!  Time flies.  The ladies relished their first taste of using axe and crampons.  We saw just two folk all day. It really could have been any day in mid winter today. I even had to get my compass out for a 10 minute stretch on the plateau.
Spring is on hold until next week.
