Sunday 7th March

Nettle and I were up in Glen Coe today. We went up the Zig Zags followed by Boomerang Arete. Other parties on Boomerang Gully, Dorsal Arete, Twisting Gully and Central Grooves.


Snow patches from road level. Only the odd snowy patch on the Zig Zags. Raining low down early in the day, but falling as snow above circa 900m. Turf still frozen to low levels. The snow pack was pretty wet to about 1000m, above this level it was below freezing. There’s some good snow ice about, but also some pretty big cornices over many lines in Stob Coire nan Lochan. Clearing as we left, so likely there’ll be a frost tonight.
