Lochan, Glen Coe

First outing of the season for the walking axe today. I was out with members of the Irish Christian Walking Club taking Peter, Ronin and Lorraine through there paces. Kath and fresh from assessment Paul were also with 3 fellow members Donncha, Conall and Martin on Dorsal Arete.

It all started out nice and sunny but by midday the snow and wind came in. We wandered around the corrie looking at snow and doing a bit of sliding. There was a new wind slab building with fresh cornices building around the corrie rim. Snow level is still low but it felt like the freezing level was around 900 to 1000m today.

Dorsal Arete, Lochan
