Another inversion

20th December 2021

It was another dry day with light winds and a temperature inversion. As I headed up Ruadh-stac Beag I went into a thick layer of cloud at around 400 metres but thankfully emerged out of the cloud at around 700 metres to clear skies, sunshine and warmer temperatures.

The snow is very limited and patchy at the moment and most peaks in the area can be climbed without a need to travel on snow. What snow there is is very firm!

Looking over Beinn Eighe to Liathach and beyond.

Meall a Ghiubhais centre with Slioch far right. Even less snow on these more Southerly aspects.

Surface hoar growing on the snowpack.

Rings in the ice caused by the water level dropping.
