Friday 24th February. Glencoe Walking Day.

A better day, yet still pretty breezy on the tops.
I was out guiding on the hill in Glencoe and decided to find a different way up Stob Coire Raineach 925m. For a long time I wondered how it would be to ascend it via the north west face approx a kilometre and a half to the left of the main normal path.
We had headed up past some fantastic deep gorges and water courses and arrived on a very wind blown North East ridge, which was still covered in good snow.
The summit was reached after about one kilometre of lovely ridge walking and so down the normal route. This will my way up there from know on, a great shortish day out!
The photos tel the tell of the snow cover, holding in there high up but has been decimated. Its due to get cold again on Friday so fingers crossed we have some left as I am out again next weekend with clients.
