MILD AND WINDY CAIRNGORMS
Coire an t-sneachda
Axe and bucket seat belay
A rise in the temperatures today and its been above freezing on the hills, first time in weeks! This will be short lived though as colder conditions tomorrow and by next weekend an Arctic blast. Despite the warmer weather there hasn't been too much snow loss in The Cairngorms. It was a breezy day but we got some nice shelter on the eastern side of The Fiacaill Ridge today. We covered snow belays and simple rock belays, a new skill set for the guys. Once more we had no precipitation today in the east.
