3rd to 5th April Dumfries and Galloway

Out with Jen and B in Dumfries and Galloway on Saturday and had a wander around Corserine (814m) and Meikle Millyea. Patchy soft snow above 400m and complete cover high up. Snow showers above 500m on a variable light wind. If the bigger gullies on the east side of this ridge survive the thaw and get a refreeze they’d give some good, easy sport.

Approaching the summit of Corserine

Climbed on dry granite at Clifton and bimbled up Criffel on Sunday then up Queensberry Hill (697m) on Monday. Patches of soft snow above 500m, but thawing fast in steady rain to above summits all Monday morning on a fresh southerly wind.
