Creag MacRanaich

Out today with Jim, Patrick and Santiago from Adventure Edinburgh. We parked near the head of Glen Ogle and ascended up rough heathery ground on to Creag MacRanaich returning via Meall Sgallachd.

There was a dusting of wet snow from the road height and some amazing icicle features on the small crags on the ascent. Some good small areas of flat ice around 750m allowed us to look at chopping steps to get across such features without having to put crampons on.

Westerly wind with the odd light shower and thawing all day with the snow cover being much reduced at the end of the day.
