Dry and Cool on the Tops

29th March 2012

Good dry conditions underfoot but misty and generally poor visibility on the tops with a brisk wind. Slivers of snow remain but these are largely avoidable, sometimes they bar descent and the snow can be pretty firm, here an ice axe and crampons would be gratefully used !
