Climbed above Red Tarn today. Descent of the snow basin was not great, a softening base with a 4/5cm layer of new wet snow on it gave very treacherous balling snow. Climbed V corner, freezing level was hovering around the summit but climbing conditions were good, ice and good turf being the order of the day. Viking buttress not looking that white but would probably be OK once you were on the route looking down. Forecast temperatures would indicate that conditions will probably stay in for the next few days.
