Traverse from West to East after ascending by Northern Pinnacles. Ridge itself was summer conditions but there was still snow on way down to the decent path. Spent half an hour on Stuc a'Choire Dhuibh Bhig as the sun was setting enjoying peace and quiet on a sunny and windless day.

Traversed the ridge W->E, ascended to main traverse via South Ridge. Slushy snow below 700m due to rain and relatively warm temperatures. Wandered a short way along the Northern Pinnacles before turning back and heading across the main ridge. Snow along the ridge was very solid/icy on windward side, softer on the leeward. Large cornices overhanging N. face, probably stable but I wouldn't risk it. Descended off far western face towards the path through the valley. Scree field was a slushy nightmare, but seemed (probably mistakenly) like it would be easier than descending the steep, banked out upper section of the gully.

Long day on Liathach, had an awesome time! Traversed W to E in challenging conditions, descending on sketchy scree field on far east face.

Topped out from a solo of Central Trinity Gully and the views along the ridge were stunning, couldn't resist the traverse. Variable conditions - full winter for much of the ridge but sections of bare grass and rock as well.

Terrible snow pack conditions. Powdered snow on bare rock. The little bit of frozen turf couldn't give me confidence over the large amount of windslab breaking up when crossing tops of gullies. Needs a good freeze-thaw cycle to be stable.
