Ive been in the Cairngorms for a couple of days, yesterday was benign but today was pretty wild, wet, warm and WINDY! No climbing to speak of but some nice long walks with a mates dog, which was good company even though I had to rescue him from a crevasse and put him under my arm when we got battered by the ferocious winds. Good job I didnt have our two huskies to carry!
We have lost allot of snow during the latest thaw, from the walk toward the Chalamain Gap I could see The Mess of Pottage which has been unrecognisable for the last few weeks. Lurchers is just about stripped and the slog upto Sron na Laig was very wet and soggy. We keep saying it but a big freeze would now be ideal………..
