Sunshine and stunning views
We have been rewarded for the poor weather of the last couple of days by a lovely day of sunshine and light winds today. We headed up Stob Ban from Geln Nevis and as well as some stunning views we enjoyed some nice crisp snow after the moisture from yesterday had frozen overnight. In places this was a little crusty but on the ridge the wind scoured snow combined with the refreeze gave us some lovey crampon conditions. We summitted and then did some ice axe arrest practice in descent as the sun went down. A stunning day showing Scotland at its best.
