Gale Force winds.

13th April 2019

Although bright sunshine it was feeling very cold in the strong to gale force South-Easterly winds.  Summit temperatures were as low of minus 6 celsius during the morning rising to minus 3 by mid afternoon.  The old snowpack is firm on all aspects.  Corrie back walls have a widespread cover of firm snow ice.  Also good snow cover on the plateau.

Walking into Coire an t-Sneachda, firm underfoot conditions, crampons and axe were useful

Looking down Coire Cas – Very gusty winds, enough to blow sunglasses off!
