Looking down at the lower part of Observatory Gully
Above the 'mantrap'
The way downScotland has had record breaking temperatures for March for three days running and it felt like it today.
I was out with Ruraidh and Alan gain today and after a sweaty walk in we enjoyed the warmth of the sun (and every now and again the cool of the shade) as we made our way briskly up the route followed by Dave and his team. There is a little snow but nothing that can't be stepped over or around.
We lunched on the summit before making our way down to the end of the CMD Arete (we went on the snow but it is easily avoidable) and then onwards down Coire Leis on snow that was soft in the sun and firmer in the shade. Another grand day out.
