The weather looks set to move into a very settled period during the middle of next week. However day time temperatures will be high. A glance at the forecast suggests possible overnight frost, which will be great for those of you prepared to climb very early. As a full moon will accompany this good weather, a head torch and an alpine mindset should repay any nocturnal efforts. Anyone wishing to experience the wonders of night time climbing please get in touch as West Coast Mountain Guides have a number of cheerful instructors willing to accompany you! Anyone not willing to confront the ‘witching hours’ might consider being careful in couloirs as the cornices might be dripping, drooping and dropping in the heat of the day. Ridges and buttresses will of course provide good alternatives.
By the way, the forest track is closed due to heavy snow above the quarry. A white van is also blocking the way:)
