Warm, sunny and icy!

Bryony, Dan, Jim and Neal enjoy the views across Scotland from their comfy belays. See also http://www.marmotte.co.uk/blog/diary

Another lovely day with very little wind. In the shade the snow is becoming very icy so it's ideal for climbing on and practising crampon footwork though on the downside front pointing and digging out belays is now hard work! Axes and crampons are essential for walking due to the hard icy snow and rocky run-outs. Take care with loose rock where the snow cover is thin.
Tomorrow looks like another great day before the arrival of cloud and colder conditions.
