Wintry in the Cairngorms at the moment - with low temps. and a lot of snow - good skiing conditions attracting a lot of mountain visitors over the festive season, and very pretty to look at.
Climbing conditions were not so good with recent powder snow burying everything and making getting to the climbs hard work, however, we managed to get out on Monday and Tuesday but were caught up in the huge traffic jam leading up to the Coire Cas on Wed. and decided to call it a day, especially with another windy day forecast suggesting an increased avalanche risk - fingers crossed for next week though as I'm back up to the West Coast for some more of the white stuff.
Thanks to Anish and Raksha for their company and enthusiasm in the poor conditions.
