13-01-15, Beinn a'Chaorainn, West Highlands - Winter Mountaineering
Start of East Ridge, Beinn a'Chaorainn.
Finally some new snow, down to the glens. Plenty of snow on A86 too! A drop in wind speed, made for an enjoyable day on East Ridge of Beinn a'Chaorainn. Very wintry feel, lots of drifted snow, cornices and wind slab about, some nice icy patches and neve. There was a short spell of calm and blue skies but plenty of buffeting for the most.
