Mild and Damp

The weather just now is particularly mild and damp. In some ways this will consolidate the deep snow pack which existed last week. A good deal of snow will be stripped, but hopefully the good ice build-up will be largely unaffected on the higher routes. It looks as though drier and colder weather should slowly return over the weekend and into next week and beyond with any luck. Certainly the forecasts suggest that the current mild temperatures will be halved, with minus levels overnight. This should result in some good climbing conditions returning to the west coast.
