Sun, blue skies, dry rock, hard snow and ice
Looking at the SAIS blog at http://saisncairngorms.blogspot.com/ it looks like the folk have been out ice climbing on the thin ice of the Mirror Direct and Scottish alpine climbing on Magic Crack, all good stuff...! Some of the easier classic gullies looked fairly busy too with several parties on the hard snow in Central gully and in the Runnel. The high pressure looks set to continue the theme of hard frosts, blue skies and sunshine for the next few days. The air is very dry too and it feels very alpine. Hint, If you look at what the weather has been doing and where the snow has been blown over the past few weeks I'm sure you could be in for a pleasant surprise in some areas!
