Tuesday 18th March

Martin climbed Forked Gully Right Hand on Stob Coire nan Lochan with Roo and Graham on Monday.The steep pitch gave a short near vertical wall of good ice with a covering of crud. The steep pitch looked as though it could be bypassed by going out right and back left if required. Plenty of soft snow with a crust in the coire, which is slowly consolidating. Parties on Boomerang Gully, Dorsal Arete and Twisting Gully and also tracks coming out of SC and NC.

Ski-ing on Aonoch Mor today (Tuesday). Cornices above east face looking big, but plenty of parties topping out. Couple of centimetres of fresh snow falling on a northerly wind during the afternoon starting with 10 minutes of graupel. Roo and Colin had climbed Golden Oldie on Saturday reporting good conditions.
