A lot less visibility today than was hope for but it was cold! Fi, Jonathan and myself headed into a fairly busy Coire an t-Sneachda with our respective Nottingham MPS groups and several other training groups.
As Arno, Henry and myself headed up the Goat Track to Coire Domhain we noticed quite a few folk out climbing in VERY thin and less than ideal conditions. The Runnel, Central and Crotched gully were looking especially busy no doubt due to the almost complete lines of old snow in the Runnel (apart from the crux chimney!!!) There were folk climbing a number of other lines such as Fingers Ridge, Red Gully and Fiacaill Couloir. Nottingham MPS teams were on Fiacaill Ridge, The Seam and Hidden Chimney with Jonathan. Climbers were also on the Haston Line, Yukon Jack (retreating?) and Jacob's Ladder which can be seen in one of the photos above!!!! Several skiers spotted on the plateau carrying skis! A few more photos of the Winter Skills group on Fi's blog here

Better visibility for tomorrow is being promised so hopefully a few better photos from the plateau, Coire an t-Sneachda and Coire a Lochain.
