In winter conditions.....how long has it taken people on here?

I would say 8-12 hours depending on conditions. Deep powder snow being different from nice firm neve.

Thanking you. Am I right in thinking there is some soft deep snow right now up in the area?

I have not been up yet but any snow lying will be pretty fresh and likely to be reasonably unconsolidated still but there is a wind so ridges might be pretty scoured. Walking the ring of steall in white out getting sand blasted does not sound like much fun

In reply to An Triubhas: I was planning on heading uo there myself this weekend, but changed my plans and heading over to the east as it seems like it will be a bit drier and brighter.

It took us 10 hours last winter with consolidated snow only on the top 200m and nothing at all below that. Long day in winter.

It took us 8hr last December, with a mix of new and old snow. A great day out.

Two days, last time I did it (deliberately, with a bivvy!)
