Chilly but nice on Cairngorm today
An interesting but chily day in the Grampian mountains today. Westerly aspects very rocky and earlery aspets much better for skiers. Climbers and skiers should note that easterly aspects have a high avalanche risk and gully descents on ski or foot, to Hells lum for example ( anything on an eastery aspect) will be dangerous and not recommended.
Powder hounds should be very careful on such enticing terrain even with your ABS airbag....I suppose you could try filing it with helium, but that's really for Birthday balloons!
