I headed out with Martin today into the Northern Corries in the Cairngorms. We climbed Pot of Gold (V,6) on the Mess of Pottage. It was snowing heavily as we made the drive across from the Fort and the fresh snow combined with the icey cracks from the last few days made for a good sporting route with lots of fun! My friend Alec has been on the Ben today and reports knee deep fresh snow above the CIC hut. It has snowed down to road level across much of the Highlands so a welcome return to whiteness!
