Anyone been out round here recently or know what conditions are like? Contemplating climbing up to grade III not sure how much snow has been put down higher up?

I was on Beinn Dearg today. There was a lot of fresh snow. Tried Fenian Gully but there was little ice. The turf was frozen on the buttress on the left.

In reply to midweekjolly1: There is a fair amount of snow down to 600m, isolated coastal mountains higher. Very windy also, plenty of wind slab in lots of places. I have been on Quinag and Cul Mor last couple of days. Some drifting, with lots of rime on the rocks, including rime on windslab. http://pjmountains.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/19-03-13-quinag-assynt-northern.html

Anybody know what the conditions on Ben Bhan are like? I figured Mad Hatters/March Hare gullies may have hung on to some of the old snow anyway...

There is plenty of snow and the turf is frozen. But I was looking from Beinn Damh yesterday so couldn't see the ice. I think there will be less ice than before but still probably enough (maybe just)
