Anyone know what conditions on the Cullin Ridge are like at the moment?

Massive difference between n & s facing aspects; from full-on hard neve to deep sugar.

If you're thinking of a Traverse the weather is immacualte so the experience will be great but not full-on winter. I'd suggest South to North may go as you'll be descending more snow slopes and ascending rock. Still have to remove crampons a few times.

I've stopped my regular UKC reports for now but I'm keeping my blog up to date still- http://skyeguides.co.uk/blog/
