Out on Creag Mac Ranaich (809m), above Glen Ogle, with a group today. Soft crusty snow above 700m and the turf above the same level feeling pretty firm. Cold sunny day with temp below freezing and a circa 30 mph NE wind on the summit. No new snow today where we were, but some wind transportation. Ben Lawyers, Tarmacahan, Ben More, Ben Vorlich, Stuc a’Chroin etc. all looked to have a good cover of snow above about 700m.

Also had a report from someone who solo’ed Central Gully in Sneachda today. It sounded fairly blowy, with some wind slab and cornices starting to form on a NE wind; breakable/soft snow and icey bulges and the gully being harder than Grade I.
