Before meeting my clients for the weekend i had an explore in Stob Coire nan Lochan. Having an early start paid off because by lunch time the weather had turned 'nasty!' Drifitng snow filled the deep track up into the corrie making ascent and descent really tricky and awkward, if only folk would consider how they create steps on walk in'S it would make life so much easier!
The corie was pretty claggy ,which made the whole environment a little spooky, combined with 'iffy' snow pack careful decisions on route choice were needed, which is a little amusing because i went up Forked Gully grade 2, maybe against my better judgment i topped out with added concern of which way to descend. Obviously the ridge back into the corrie provided the best option.
Back down for lunch time and just before the new snow fall and increasing drifting, a fun morning! I caught glimpses of various parties out on routes such as Ordinary and Inclination and the Dorsal Grat all having a great time in this improving winter.
