/ Arrochar Conditions
There was about 8 parties in the Corrie with one team on Recess Route.
Fun day out!
Enjoy yourself tomorrow!
Climbed the SE ridge today on good frozen turf and rimed up rock. Coire bowl is quite well scoured, but slab formed in sheltered locations, with a bit of depth higher up. Girlfriend and a friend climbed Beinn Narnain from the N side, reported seeing a fair bit of slab as well, but were able to avoid all but the shallowest Snowing gently as we walked off
There were at least 7 teams climbing on the Cobbler yesterday. Conditions were pretty good. Of course it will probably be buried after today...
We were there on Sat, great gully was bare and is not climbable (Unless you can make it over the chockstone at the start) Everything was quite rocky. Powder around mainly. We done a route called Heart Buttress III which is a turf/mixed route. Perfect for the conditions. You might be ok with central gully but didn't get a look at it on Sat.
