Calm and sunny

Generally good cover on the plateau.  A very hard base of snow-ice with a thin covering of soft snow.  Lee slopes, and hollows hold soft snow, some snowpack weakness in the surface layers, and at depth in the older storm snow.

Windy col and Mess of potage with large overhanging cornices and some  surface instabilities.

Beinn Mheadhoin in the distance with an interesting build up of snow on the North-West slope.
