Frozen turf/heather, and the odd bit of verglas. Snow a couple of inches to a foot deep, but dry powder not very helpful for upward progress.

Hoping to get on some of the other routes in the corrie but a very rapid thaw set in mid-morning.
An enjoyable winter scramble - best if the harder variations are taken.

Walked in from old Invercauld bridge off A93 nr Braemar,superb conditions moved together and I led small pitch on ridge about two thirds hieght above a small gully in ridge, after that got easy and we just carried on moving together to the top, about an hour on the route in all, after that bagged summit of lochnagar via top of cac carn mor, then back tracked to second munro of the day carn a coire boidheach, then on to final munro carn an t-sagairt mor (left sack at bealach prior to ascent!) then picked up sack and walked out back to invercauld bridge long day 10 and a half hours. Bright sunshine all day no wind, snow conditions soft for walking made walking such a distance quite trying!

LONG walk in on soggy snow and bogs, brilliant sunny day, lovely little scramble topped off with munro.
A couple of exposed areas, where a slip or fall could be disasterous. If in doubt, rope up on short exposed sections.
Corrie was blootered in snow, couldn't even see stegosaurus rib!!!
