The very cold spell of weather continues along with very light winds. It's fabulous to have the cold, winter conditions but it's doing nothing to consolidate the huge amounts of snow. I headed onto a westerly aspect today (better) to find a Grade 1 line on Creag an Leth-choin (Lurchers Crag). Along with the deep, soft drifts there was a breakable crust today. It was hard work again, especially in the Lairig Ghru area on the approach to the crag. I found a nice gully to go up but the conditions weren't ideal. I backed off. I want to see my 51st Birthday! One more day of cold then big change on Friday with much milder weather coming in.
