Today Nettle, B and I headed over to the Brack, Arrochar. There are some great winter routes on the Brack, but it’s relatively low and doesn’t come in to condition too often. Today it proved a good choice, with the turf well frozen and the unconsolidated snow rarely deep enough to cause too much bother. We climbed Inglis Clark Arete, starting fairly direct up the front of the arete (quite technical) and drifting in to the groove on the right higher up.

It was snowing lightly on a light northerly wind until about noon and then cleared towards dusk with a hard frost starting.
