/ anyone been out in the southern highlands?
I was in Arrochar on Sunday, most of the ground seemed frozen. I would imagine it has been snowing today up there, so getting to the routes will (probably) take a wee bit longer.
As long as the winds stay northerly, would imagine little will have changed up high.
East and south faces of the Cobbler are black, I just walked in for the second time to do Recess Route (parp!) stuff facing north has lying snow but there is no hoar. Turf seemed frozen and there were some fun icicles to play with on the way down.
