Hard icy snow in the Cairngorms

Despite the temperature being above zero the snow pack was frozen solid which was good for crampon work but worrying for ice axe braking and no doubt skiing on the upper runs...! See Fi's photos and report at http://www.marmotte.co.uk/blog/diary Last year with similar conditions there were several accidents due to the hard icy snow so make sure you have your ice axe and crampons with you and that you know how to use them.
