Traces of fresh snow on the tops

6th January 2016


View towards Kinlochewe.



Looking over Coire Domhain towards Sgur Nan Fhir Duibhe (963m) with the high (Black Crags/ Bodiac Dubh) white with frost. As you can see there is only small amounts of old snow  remaining here in Torridon although there is fresh snow fall forecast for tonight! There seems to be more snow on the Eastern mountain ranges such as the Fannichs.

    You were right about the Fannichs today. I was on Sgurr nan Clach Geala and there is a lot more snow than over in Torridon. Heavy riming on all rocks above 750 metres including the Geala buttresses with extensive patches of neve also developingl. NW ridge of Sgurr nan Clach Geala was a mix of neve, powder drifting to about a foot, and heavily rimed rocks. A nice day out with the wind not as bad on the tops as I had expected.
