Wednesday 6th February

I was in Stob Coire nan Lochan and there was a lot of snow about with a couple of avalanches down the Western-most gullies. Routes were quite hard going with the build up of unhelpful snow, but the Ordinary Routes (on South and Central Buttresses) had ascents and Sam Clarke and I did Crest Route. A very pleasant day indeed.

Unfortunately, now sat in Ballachulish waiting for a car to be fixed, I can tell you the snow will not be much of a problem for the next few days. Persistent rain is forecast and it is currently 5 degrees on the summit of Aonach Mor!

Thanks to Gaz Marshall for rescuing us from Ballachulish late last night and putting us up in the Fort. Thanks also to Mike Tweedley for giving us a lift South today. Cheers guys!
