/ Cairngorms for tomorrow?
Were you actually out today? And was any turf frozen?
I'm going for a look tomorrow - will post back.
The turf was definitely NOT frozen on saturday (nor were the crags very white though this could well have changed by now). Yeah could be worth a look for something non-turfy though.
> Were you actually out today? And was any turf frozen?
You have doubts?
See you there Jamie.
I have doubts - any turf on the West has been soggy mush last couple of days. Remains to be seen if the East is any better!
Apparently it's -3 on Cairngorm at the mo and a few cm of snow fell today...
It was actually lot colder and the ground more frozen yesterday compared today!!
P.s. roger I thought that you had emigrated; has your mobile number chang. I was hoping to go back to that corner we tried when the conditions are good in a few weeks if you are still interested?
Did the Seam in Sneachda today. Turf was variable and on a less rocky route might have been a deal-breaker. Lots of powder needing cleared and some iced cracks - not vintage conditions!
We went up Honeypot on Mess of Pottage, there was a fair amount of powder and some verglass which lead to a great day out.
Cloud was down so maps had to be used to find the crag, we weren't the only ones with dramas as some footsteps headed well off to the north and we kept hearing "for pete's sake," and "come on guy's," being shouted as some others looked for the crag....
