More wind, more snow showers.

5th February 2013

 Plenty of snow near the col on Buachaille Etive Beag.  The snow which fell before Sunday’s milder conditions has now re-frozen, and provides quite a nice walking surface. It can be seen as a slightly grayer shade to the left of the rocks. However, there is lots of soft snow has fallen in the last 36 hours, and is quite hard work to walk through.   
 The sun made a very brief (about 30 second) appearance between showers. The strong winds meant that there was lots of snow blowing about. 
Plenty of snow on East aspects. Here looking up toward point 902m on Buachaille Etive Beag. 
Exposed ridges, like the South West ridge of Stob Coire an Raineach are blown clear.
