Today I was out with staff and pupils from The Glasgow Academy on Stob Coire nan Lochan. We were after a resonably short day given the amount of daylight available so we climbed Dorsal Arete as 2 parties of 3. Conditions were good with firm snow and even ice on the crest of the ridge although there were a few patches of windslab to be avoided in the gullys nearby. There were 2 other parties on Dorsal Arete but other than a team on Twisting Grooves and winter skills group from Outward Bound the coire was quite quiet. Stunning weather too.
