Stob Ban. Sun and Snow!

I was working with Biz and Jamie today on Stob Ban in The Mamores. Fresh deep 'fluffy' [technical term!] snow covered the hills over night and continued to fall into this morning. By lunchtime the sun was out and the sky was bright blue.
We broke trail and found the going tough under foot. The reward was some amazing 360 degree views of some of Scotland's finest peaks and Glens.
We only saw two folk out today who were just having a wee ramble up the glen. The ridges and buttresses are plastered and with a couple of cold nights there will be some excellent routes to be had on Stob Ban.
After six days on the hill I am heading to the beach tomorrow for a change of scene, after all when the sun is out Scotland is the best place in the world be all things outdoors!
