/ Liathach or An Teallach traverse tomorrow
I heard they were good from someone up there a week ago. Not got any more recent conditions advice though. I don't imagine they have got worse given the weather.
Ascended via Chockstone gully. Combinations of solid and unconsolidated snow there. Summit - lots of powder, rime which falls apart when touched, no frozen turf. A good day out, quite cold on top, and my crampons have never seen so much bare rock. Got a suntan
At this time of year best treat it as an alpine route and try to get on the ridge before the sun strips it.
