/ Coire nan Lochan, Glencoe
I shall head out too, just trying to suss out what to go for
A lot further south than the Coe admittedly but things looked good for a wee skoot up Y Gully on Cruach Ardrain today. Nice neve, turf like concrete on the NW ridge but as soon as I entered upper Coire Ardrain a hard crust broke of in slabs sliding easily on the powder snow beneath with similar conditions at the foot of Y Gully. Continued across the coire and stuck to the ridges.
Thanks all - suck it and see I guess! Maybe see some of you on the hill tomorrow... I'll be the one who is full of cold and should probably be writing essays... But the weather is just too good (I hope)!
