Very mild on Dinner- Time Buttress Today

Ben and I had a great fun morning following the slowly drying rock up the various steeper bits of Dinner-Time Buttress. A little snow remains in the gullies at the top of Aonach Dubh, but the day just got milder and milder!
Misty conditions meant we couldn't see allot of Stob Coire nan Lochan as we traversed around and descended into the coire below Bidean, but what we could see suggests, wet snow on wet rock and wet turf with wet seepage, generally wet! Stob Coire Nam Beith is holding snow in the deeper gullies, but evidence of stone fall and broken sections don't encourage investigation at present. Having said all that the Glissading was amazing on the large patches of old snow, just perfect conditions for a bit of foot skiing!
