Good conditions with biting cold winds

Looking toward the Fiacaill Buttress in Coirean t Sneachda
Blocks forming underfoot - a good indicator of a weakness in the snowpack

Conditions are generally very good but with much digging on cliffs to find belays etc, good walking and good snowcover. Some unstable windslab forming on E to S to W aspect blocks release underfoot as shown on photo on a E aspect at 1000 m.
