Frozen snowpack, hard and Icy.

6th February 2020

Yesterdays moist snowpack froze hard last night and during the early hours of this morning and crampons were definitely the order of the day. It was a splendid day with great views, it felt like a proper winter day in Glencoe. Winds were light from the South-Westerly direction and the sun was shining.
