Decent neve on the ridge. Even a bit of ice here and there on the rocks. Not much in the way of views but a great day.

A great day out despite spindrift, started late but managed to get up and down in daylight. A fine outing to complete my Scottish Mountain Ridges Ticklist.

Great day - typical horrific weather starting with rain and followed up with snow and hail. First tick though, albeit easy...

An unbelievably good day--the views and conditions were simply stunning. Step-cutting ascent, hard neve in places, water ice in others, all covered with a couple of inches of fresh snow.

Beautiful day with a temperature inversion to all sides...and a Brocken Spectre made an appearance too.

Not exactly in condition, though still plenty of snow in the not so steep sections. Going only with the ice axe, leaving the crampons in the car proved to be the right choice of equipment.
