Winter is back. Sron Na Larig in Glencoe today.

Andy Spink was out mentoring Cliff who is working towards his MIC award.

They headed onto the fine exposed crest of Sron Na Larig in Glencoe. The route was being plastered with new snow being driven be strong westerly winds. Cliff guided and instructed Steve on the route.

A brilliant day in reasonable weather and the ground is starting to look much whiter. Ice was building at 850 m and the snow settling on the turf. Great news after a slow warm start!

A week of stormy weather and snow forecast is expected. We wait to see with excitement how much is laid down and how the winter routes develop he in Scotland.
