23-01-13, Creag Meagaidh - Winter Walking
I am back at Glenmore lodge this week, doing some more mountaineering. It has been very stormy and plenty of snow has fallen in the Cairngorms. Went to Creag Meagaidh today for some different scenery, up the window very scored and hard neve then back over Stob Poite Coire Adair. The cliffs are plastered with neve high up, the ice routes are starting to look promising. A lot of ice at the bottom of Last Post and South Post Direct (middle pitch looked good as well). Looked like an Ice sheet forming on The Wand, but couldn't tell how thick, The Pumpkin is no where near. Plenty of slab looking snow in Easy and Raeburns Gully - as to be expected!
