Crampons and ice axe required.

There has been a re-freeze of the existing snowpack leading to icy conditions in places underfoot. The two figures sat amongst the marker poles were very determined to summit Cairngorm as they used the "crawling on all fours" technique on the icy sections.

The plateau is still holding plenty of snow although careful route choice is needed if your ski touring to avoid the bare patches.
