Bridge of Orchy

A frustrating day today, as John, myself and a group of climbers from Falkirk Community Trust had planned to take a look at the West facing crags near Bridge of Orchy. However, snowy road conditions on the way up and finally a lorry partially off the road on the A82 just North of Tyndrum, meant we never actually got out of our vehicle.

Visibility wasn’t great, but the odd glimpse showed the West facing crags to be pretty scoured. There was lots of fresh snow during the morning on a West or South-Westerly wind and this would have been leading to high avalanche risks on lee slopes. More snow is forecast overnight tonight with the winds being more Southerly.
