An amazing day out today doing some classic Scottish winter mountaineering. The weather forecast was not great but we were extremely lucky with calm and dry weather all day, we even had some blue skies.
Avalanche hazard was a major consideration and the usual summer route to access these peak...
The weather today was typically Scottish with gale force winds and rain / snow. The freezing level followed us up the hill as we ascended into Coire na Tulaich to look at transceivers, probing and search techniques.
It was a very busy day in Coire nan Lochan with a line of people heading up from the car park. Teams from university mountaineering clubs and climbers club meets were all keen to get on the classic grade 2 - 3 routes with Dorsal Arete attracting much of the attention.
