17-01-16, Applecross, North West Highlands - Winter Mountaineering

The intimidating view of the Chioch headwall.
 A change of scenery, we left Skye and headed to Beinn Bhan on Applecross. Clouds were fairly set in but rose well above the summits by midday, Skye was still looking gloomy. We did the traverse of a' Chioch, which we have done before but still a spectacular mountaineering day out. Ice appeared to be forming but routes like Silver Tear are well off, and March Hares Gully was full of soft unconsolidated snow.
Traversing the Chioch not far from the summit.
Plenty of snow on the way down.
