Cloudy but clearing

10th February 2017

A cloudy start to the morning with very light snow showers.  Upward progress still hard work in the deeper drifts of snow away from the well trodden paths.  Much calmer than yesterday with little noticeable wind.

The West face of Aonach Dubh (North-West facing). The bottoms of the gullies look bare however the sheltered tops of the gullies will have deposits of windslab from the South-East winds.

At least the summit cairn of Meall a Bhuiridh looks suitably wintry!

This ski run sign has built a good crust of rime in the South-East winds

Rising cloud levels in the early afternoon revealed the majestic North-East flank of the Buachaille
