20th March 2011 Aonach Mor

Third day of the trip with Euan, John and the Falkirk High Tops team today. After Skye and Kintail over the last two days we took the Gondola up and headed in to the West Face of Aonach Mor and climbed Golden Oldy.

There was cloud down to about 700m with the odd break, light rain showers from early afternoon and the freezing level was above the summits. The snow was generally soft and becoming saturated with some ice hanging on. Larger areas of turf were frozen, but care was required with the odd loose block in the thawing conditions.
