/ Sneachda Conditions?
Unconsolidated powder on bare rock
I'm sure it was good today but the forecast for tomorrow is gales and plus 7 degrees
Doubt it tbh, it's away to thaw away and hopefully refreeze by next weekend, though I doubt there will be any snow on top of it.
Did route major today on carn etchachan with the red guard finish as the battlements groove wasn't iced. I thought conditions on the route were good for early season. Turf frozen, snow reasonable (a bit of powder about but not too much), didnt have to dig much for protection-great route.
We came down via the goat track and there seemed to be a bit more powder about in Sneachda. Doesnt look fantastic weather for the coming week but you never know I guess if it freezes over the weekend.
hope that helps
That'd be great, I'll pm you my email address.
Were you guys over on castle wall? Afraid I didnt get any pics looking over that way.
Bit wild on the plateau getting home yesterday!:)
It was lovely and sunny on Sunday...just need to choose your days boys ;)
