A fine Easter Sunday
9th April 2023
It has been largely a dry day with strong South-Easterly winds making it feel cold at higher levels with some nice shelter to be found in the glens. Our snow pack is much depleted with only a few patches remaining around high coire rims and gullies. The road side car parks are full to overflowing and there were many people out enjoying the hills. Rock climbers and boulders were active on the dryer crags and blocks.
Tomorrow we can expect some light showers throughout the period with perhaps a trace of sleet and snow on the higher tops.
Dry conditions and hardly any reaming snow, the classic profile is a fine rock climb – the Cioch Nose.
The Isle of Skye from the view point just beyond Beallach na Ba. The visible patches of snow are on the black Cullin, the red Cullin are more to the left, and far left is Benn Dearg Mhore.
Rock climber were out in force today. I think they are climbing on Tom Patey’s classic rock climb, the Sword of Gideon
Snow patches remain on high coire rims, this example is on Beinn Bhann.
And here – small snow patches on Liathach.
and just a few patches of snow remaining on Spidean Coire nan Clach, Beinn Eighe.
