After the wild and windy weather of last week I was keen with the good forecast today to get up high and tick off a summit! We headed up the Cas ridge looking at some more boot work plus step cutting before putting our crampons on as the snow was frozen solid and very icy in places. We then headed up to 1141 and on to the top of Cairngorms stopping for a quick summit photo as seen above. We then headed down to Ciste Meredith which had a lot of soft unstable snow and a large cornice. From here we headed back towards the ski area and back down to the car park. It was great to be out enjoying the views and up high. The team did well to get to grips with crampon technique in some hard icy conditions.
Looks like it is going to be warm and damp tomorrow before another good day on Thursday.
