Frosty mornings


Very fine weather at the moment, with overnight frosts. Tower Ridge is very busy by all accounts. Creag Meagaidh and Last Post were awesome according to Bruce Poll. Thanks to Andy Ravenhill for the shot of The Great Tower.

This comment from Bruce Poll:

…”Stunning weather after the storms of last week. The recent warm temperatures have given way to cold and clear nights with an Alpinesque feel to the air and frozen snow generally across the mountains. The last few days we have climbed on the Ben: Hadrian’s, Orion Directissima to the basin, Smith Holt exit from the basin, the top of NE Buttress (where I have never climbed the ManTrap on pure snow and ice for over 20 years, not for the faint hearted); Last Post on Meagy (stunning)………and the rest of the week’s weather promises the same. There are still a few droopy cornices about that are getting the sun at certain times of the day!

For those who keep on trying, when Scotland delivers on the weather, it is so worth waiting for. Enjoy”….
