Rain Stopped Play

22nd March 2019

Very wet, very windy and very mild! By the third time blown to my knees and soaked to the skin, I saw sense and bailed! As forecast, the rain and wind eased a bit by early afternoon, turning more showery and cooler with a hint of hail and sleet on the summits. What little remains of the snowpack is wet and thawing at most levels.

Creag Dhubh at the east end of Beinn Eighe as seen through sheets of horizontal rain this morning!

A gloomy view looking down Glen Torridon with Liathach on the left and Coire an Laoigh, Beinn Eighe, centre right. Not much evidence of snow below cloud level at around 700m.

As good and as far as I got, around 400m below the east ridge of Creag Dhubh, Beinn Eighe and a wet and patchy snowpack – as were my underpants!
