A day of clear blue skies and light winds. Â Due to the temperature inversion it was freezing at glen levels but summit temperatures were as high as plus 7 degrees C. Â The snowpack is generally very firm with serious run out potential on steeper slopes. Â Southerly facing slopes softened as the day progressed. Â At lower altitudes frost and ice has coated some of the approach paths. Â This has made some of the river crossings tricky especially without the use of walking poles.
