Wonderful winter climbing conditions here in the Cairngorms

 Nice day at work today with Nick who cruised up his first winter climb, we were so lucky to catch such wonderful weather and climbing conditions.

                                                    The Coire has great conditions for the time of year.

Some outstanding spring winter conditions

Wow, we have had a fantastic spell of fine weather here and the climbing and ski-mountaineering is good. Due to the Covid rules we can only participate with local climbers but as we live in the Highland Region that still give us a great selection of fine people to climb with but one should still take care and try to keep to the rules. Do remember to stay safe and stay local. 

Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions in Local Authority areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and safe route choices for exercise. For further guidance please refer to the following information for hillwalkers and climbers and snowsports on ski and board.

Here are some images from the past few day from around the North-West.
