Less minging than expected on Curved Ridge

I won't say it was nice but we saw the sun and a little blue sky and the rain was light showers rather than torrential as I took Tom and Julian to Curved Ridge today. It was very sociable with 2 Joint Services groups and Mike's party just ahead of us. There is plenty of soft snow around the gullys but most of the Ridge is wet rock. Lots of snow still in the Coires though.

The gloves of choice this week! (The Frenchmen who had come up N Buttress wanted a picture of 'the Scottish Winter Gloves')
