Woke up this morning to fresh snow down to about 500m and a freeze to about the same level overnight. A last minute change of plan took us to Dorsal Arete with the Chimney finish. Lochan was feeling the part today with fresh snow and sunshine. There is good old snow about and exposed turf was firming up though anything deep was not frozen, cold again tonight though so may improve. The steep mixed routes were looking the part also, Unicorn and Inclination looked white, Scabbard also.... not sure about how well frozen though.
