Feeling colder today
Slightly cloudier and windier today so feeling a lot colder.
We had a good day looking at security on steep ground. We even found a safe area for some ice axe practise ...
Very little change in the hard icy snow and good climbing conditions in the easier gully lines.
The buttresses are black although some were starting to frost up a bit as banks of cloud drifted over from the east.
All the gully lines in Coire an t-Sneachda were very busy with dozens in and around the Trident gully area!
Some amazing photogenic ice formations and frosted vegetation in the stream beds.
On our return to Aviemore we noticed people walking on Loch Morlich which presumably is now frozen in places!!
