Weekend Conditions

Had a flying midweek trip to Lochnagar. Conditions were good for Hard Buttress routes but on easier angled things, lots of snow was hindering progress. Wednesday was also quite windy.

Today the temperature has slowly climbed all day after light snowfall at valley level this morning. It is currently 6 degrees and raining heavily in the valley, it could just still be snowing on the tops.

There is good well consolidated snow in the gullies at Great End and on Helvellyn with a warm night and rain forecast, followed by freezing again tomorrow I would head to either of these spots for a day out tomorrow.
