25/12/06 Looking into Coire an t Sneachda

25th December 2006

Warm on the tops and cold in the valleys – the snowpack is diminishing in the warm temperatures, but the remaining snowpack is bullet hard and ice glazed, requiring crampons to be worn to progress on slope angles more than 5 degrees !!!Crags remain bone dry with loose rock and the snow gullies in the Northern Corries are now broken.

However a great day for being on the tops with sunshine and good views, now, all that is required for the perfect day is to get home for Christmas dinner.

Merry Xmas
