As it turned cooler during the morning rain turned to snow above 800 metres. Â Stream beds are in full spate due to recent mild wet conditions. Â Peaty paths are sodden and slippery. Â Large gaping holes in the old snow are developing over burns; notably in the Ciste Gully. Â Walking poles proved useful for testing precarious sections before crossing.
