Raw and Thaw in Glencoe. Run up into Corrie nan Lochan today.

Today I had a run up into Corrie nan Lochan to put some steep ground on the legs for the Highlander Mountain Marathon in April and get a feel for what is happening up in them hills. They call it the 'Hurt Lochan' and it hurt!
Loads of new snow was being blown into the corrie at 750m, but raining at 500m. There were folk out and about climbing and walking. Mostly folk were low down on the crags below 800m. It was a raw morning and a rawer afternoon.

Spot the climbers?

I am at Alan Kimber's house after hiring 25 pairs of winter boots for this weekends course we are running, hope they all fit! Thanks Alan a brilliant service!
