The Cold Weather Still Prevails

I think my girlfriend is tired of me telling her how lucky she has been with the weather. Ice is forming nicely at all levels with the low temperatures looking set to continue.

Yestetday I took Tom up Deep Cut Chimney on Stob Coire Nam Beith. There was some good ice in the initial chimney and the recent wind had scoured the slopes to reveal old neve higher up.

I also went up to Ceitilin Slabs down Glen Etive on Thursday, for somewhere different. Unfortunately the 'copious amounts of ice' as described in the guide book wasn't present but we did climb a gully not described. This provided small interesting steps of grade III / IV.
