Lochan, Glencoe 21-02-12

Things feeling fairly damp on the Scottish West currently.  We had an instructional day in the Ice Factor yesterday which worked well.  Today we rapped up in Gore-tex and headed to Corrie Lochan.  Lots of people out despite the weather, mainly walking and skills courses.  We climbed a busy Dorsal Arete which gave a good adventure in the wind and rain!! Still fairly good snow cover on the arete with useful snow.  Easy Gullies are still complete but there is a lot of evidence of rock fall about and Forked Gully has had a big wet slide come down.

Looking better for Thursday and Friday with a cold weekend forecast...

 A damp Lochan!
